Mob beats, slashes cop trying to make arrest

GEORGETOWN – An angry mob beat and slashed a traffic policeman at around 18.45 hrs yesterday after he had attempted to arrest an unlicenced motorist in Alexander Street, Kitty.

Police Constable Roderick Mc Donald, who is seconded to the Kitty Police Station, was punched and slashed under the chin with a broken bottle by the civilians, including a few women.

He was treated at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), along with an unidentified man who was said to be one of the assailants.

According to reports, Mc Donald was in the vicinity of Alexander Street, Kitty, when he stopped an unlicenced motorist.

Kaieteur News understands that as the constable was about to arrest the traffic offender, some civilians who were nearby began to berate the rank. According to a source, a man who was with the group walked up to Constable Mc Donald and said: “Me ain afraid of no (expletive) police.”

The policeman reportedly then informed the man that he was under arrest and it was at that point that the other civilians attacked him.

Kaieteur News was told that ranks from the Kitty Police Station rescued their beaten colleague and also arrested one of his assailants, who was subsequently taken to the GPHC to be treated for minor injuries.

It is unclear whether the unlicenced motorist was detained.
