| 30/10/2012

(CNS): Two police officers were injured this morning inside the George Town courthouse when they tried to arrest a suspect. According to an RCIPS spokesperson, the two men are  being treated in hospital for their injuries. “One officer sustained a hand injury and the other a knee injury,” as they tried to arrest the man in relation to an aggravated burglary. The suspect is understood to have been attending court on another matter but as he left the courtroom at around 10:00 Tuesday morning the officers tried to arrest him on the burglary charges and a fight broke out in the lobby area of the upstairs courtrooms.

Despite his efforts to fight off the law enforcement officials, the man was arrested, not only on suspicion of aggravated burglary, but also for assault and resisting arrest.
