Man finally admits to assaulting police PRO

A 22-year-old man who was remanded to HMP Dodds after he admitted to threatening police public relations officer Acting Inspector Roland Cobbler but denied assaulting or resisting him, has had a change of heart.

After spending a week at the St Philip institution, Changa Shaquille Stowe of 1st Avenue Flint Hall, St Michael pleaded guilty to assaulting and resisting Inspector Cobbler in the execution of his duties.

“This week on remand was a testing one. I am sorry for my behaviour,” Stowe told Magistrate Graveney Bannister in the District ‘A’ Traffic Court this week.

After addressing the court, the magistrate granted him bail in the sum of $2,500 with one surety.

Stowe, who was a passenger in a minibus when the incident occurred, will return before the same magistrate on June 28 for sentencing.

In the meantime, a pre-sentencing report has been ordered into his life.

As part of his bail conditions, Stowe must report to the District ‘A’ Police Station every Saturday between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. with valid identification.

    While we need law and order, we also need for the police to have courtesy, professionalism and respect. For many time members of the police force, display great disrespect for the community, and this is the MAJOR PROBLEM . Then they would like the community to be supportive of them., which is counter productive to fighting crime in Barbados.
