RUMOURS ON SOCIAL media had it that 25-year-old Jamar Green was beaten and tied to a bus stop post in Shorey Village, St Andrew, on Wednesday after breaking into homes.
That was not the case, however. Police said their investigation did not to point to Green as committing any crime, and two brothers have been charged with assaulting him.
