Detectives investigating the incident explained that the man was hit with a baseball bat at around 12:15am on Sunday morning (6 September.) Police stated today, that the 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call from a member of the public who reported that his friend had been hit as they walked in Courts Road. Police and medics responded to the scene and the victims told officers that they had were near Springfield’s Court when two men dressed in dark clothing approached them from behind and hit one of the victims on the head with the bat then from the location.

The victims said that the two offenders wore hoods over their faces and dark clothing.

    THOSE QUESTIONS WERE asked before and someone went nuts. 

    How do we know that this is not  a call in the wilderness of someone saying

    " I am tired of seeing una"     "Ketch the rake"

    Might be helpful if the police could clear up a few details and give a better description. ‘tall and dark’ isn’t going to help us find these thugs. Caymanian/fillipino/white skinned? might help jog a  few memories if the descriptions were better.

      The police only have what the witnesses tell them, and bearing in mind these people were attacked from behind, I imagine they have not been able to say too much.
