Two law enforcement officers have been accused of engaging in acts of domestic violence.
Charges of causing harm and threats of death have been laid on Kellon Phillip, a 26-year old Police Officer of Soubise, St. Andrew’s.
The charges on Phillip arose out of an altercation he had with his former girlfriend, Raquell Thomas of Tivoli, St. Andrew’s during the “Preeday” show at the Grenada National Stadium on August 8.
An eyewitness to the incident told THE NEW TODAY Newspaper that several persons had to scamper when the policeman allegedly attacked the young lady during the show.
The eyewitness said a team of individuals who are connected with the St. John’s Ambulance Brigade that had a medical booth at the stadium had to render medical assistance to the injured woman.
According to the eyewitness, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Sylvan McIntyre who is associated with the brigade was forced to intervene and had to take charge of his junior police officer.
Phillip is accused of biting Thomas on her cheek, and pushing her against a wall.
The suspect allegedly threatened to prick out the eyes of his former girlfriend who was at the time attending the show with her new boyfriend.
The policeman reportedly told his ex, if he cannot have her, then no one else would have her.
Meanwhile, Prison Officer Desmond Williams of Marian, St. George’s has been charged with causing harm to his female companion, Stephanie Francis who is a Nursing Assistant from Morne Jaloux, St. George’s.
The charges on the two lawmen have come closely on the heels of the three recent murders of women at the hands of their male partners which the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) has described as crimes of passion.
