Two detectives beaten
Two police detectives were beaten in Wilkinson Road, Richmond Gap, St Michael, yesterday evening, and the man they arrested freed by residents.
One lawman was cuffed in the mouth and sustained other facial injuries, while both suffered soft tissue injuries from the blows rained on them from individuals in the area.
Both were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for treatment.
The incident has led to the Royal Barbados Police Force issuing a strong warning that anyone who attacks the police while they are executing their duty, as well as assists offenders in any way to evade apprehension, will be arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
