An altercation involving Public Service Vehicle (PSV) workers and members of the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF) has led to two men being slapped with a number of charges.
This morning a number police patrols responded to a call for assistance from Police personnel who were on duty at the Constitution River Terminal about 8:45 am today, Thursday May 3, 2018.
This call for assistance was as a result of an altercation between two male PSV workers and two police officers who were dressed in uniform and on duty within the Terminal. As a result, two persons were taken into custody, investigations were carried out and the two mentioned persons were subsequently charged, each with a number of offences.
Travis Tremaine Brathwaite, 30 years, of Sealy Hall, St. Philip was arrested and formally charged for the following offences: obstructing Police Constable 2077 Dennis Murray in the execution of his duty, assaulting Constable 2077 Denis Murray in the execution of his duty, resisting Constable 2077 Denis Murray in the execution of his duties and criminal damage of one Police uniform, shirt the property of the Crown.
