Home News Minibus driver arrested after attacking traffic rank with cutlass
A minibus driver of Sophia, Greater Georgetown, was on Tuesday arrested after he attacked a traffic rank with a cutlass at Homestretch Avenue, Georgetown.
Based on reports received, at about 13:15h, a Police Constable was on a motorcycle patrol when he observed a minibus bearing registration number BZZ 3029 overtaking a line of traffic along Homestretch Avenue, Georgetown.
The minibus was intercepted and the driver was told of the offence and was asked to produce his driver’s licence but instead of doing so, he reportedly drove away.
The Constable gave chase and caught up with the minibus on Sheriff Street, Georgetown. He once again managed to stop the driver in a bid to prevent him from committing the same offence.
Nevertheless, the driver reportedly exited the vehicle, drew a cutlass and attacked the Constable, who ran in a bid to prevent himself from being hurt.
After the attack, the driver went back into his minibus and drove to his Sophia residence. The matter was reported and the suspect was arrested at his home and taken to the Brickdam Police Station where he remains in custody pending charges.
