Cane Grove man claims he was assaulted by policeman after report of disorderly conduct

The police said in a release today that at about 2000h last night, security guard Nicole Bobb, of Virginia Village, Cane Grove, ECD, informed the   police at the Cane Grove Police Station, by telephone, that a man was in the GT&T Compound at Cane Grove behaving in a disorderly manner and threatening her.

The release said that a male police Constable responded to the report and on arrival saw the man, who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, behaving in a disorderly manner and using indecent language.

The release said that the policeman spoke to the man who came out of the compound, but continued to behave in the same manner on the roadway. He was later identified as Michael Clarke of Cane Grove and the father of the children of  Bobb.

The police say that the rank attempted to arrest Clarke who resisted being arrested and subsequently pulled away from the policeman, falling to the ground and hitting his head on the roadway in the process. The policeman also sustained an injury to his left hand and did not proceed with the arrest, the police said.

At about 0800h. today, the police were informed that Clarke had been admitted to the GPHC and he was alleging that the police rank had assaulted him.

Investigations are being conducted into this matter by the Police Office of Professional Responsibility.
