Two police officers are among four people who are presently in police custody.
Reports indicate that the four allegedly attacked a young Springvale couple, beating a woman unconscious and almost severing her companion’s wrist.
Reports indicate that one of the suspects is a police corporal attached to the Central Division with over 20 years’ service.
Polices report state that 21 year old Vanessa Vialva and her common-law husband 25 year old Bradley Ramnarine were leaving PJ’s Bar at Mount Pleasant Road, Springvale, Claxton Bay, around 11 pm on Monday after celebrating Vialva’s birthday when they were attacked.
Vialva was reportedly beaten over the head with a piece of wood by a female and her common-law husband’s hand was almost severed.
The attack allegedly stemmed over a land dispute.
Investigations are continuing.
There are reports today that an escaped convict has been shot dead by police.
According to Looptt.com just over two months after Sheldon Lendore escaped prison custody, he was shot dead during an alleged shootout with police yesterday.
While up to 6am this morning information was still coming in, sources said that the shootout took place around 5pm.
Lendore was wounded in that incident and rushed to hospital where he reportedly died whilst undergoing medical treatment.
37 year old Lendore of Cap-de-Ville, Point Fortin, escaped custody while being treated at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex on August 23 this year.
The 37-year-old man was imprisoned as a result of several allegations of robberies and firearm related offences.
