| 04/05/2010

(CNS): Police have refused to confirm the arrest of a Bodden Town MLA this weekend following an assault at a condo complex on Seven Mile Beach. However, the UDP has confirmed that Dwayne Seymour was arrested and jailed at George Town Police Station Saturday evening. Police said that at around 10.00 pm on 1 May they received a report of an assault at the Cayman Beach Reef Resort on West Bay Road. As a result of the incident two men sustained injuries and attended the Cayman Islands Hospital in George Town. They were both released following treatment but police arrested three men in connection with the incident. This afternoon one of the men was released from custody and two were released on police bail.

Speaking to News 27, UDP party secretary Ellio Solomon confirmed that Dwayne Seymour was one of three men arrested this weekend but said he did not know the details of the arrest and Seymour had not been charged with any crime.
Police confirmed that, at this stage, no one has been charged in connection to the incident at the condo resort but that enquiries are ongoing. They did not say if Seymour was one of the men that had been released on bail.
Other sources have told CNS that the assault is directly connected to a family dispute involving Seymour’s estranged wife and new partner.
