Newspaper Reporter Attacked

Journalist Johnson Richardson – kicked down by the prisoner

Senior Reporter at the Grenada Informer Newspaper, Johnson Richardson was attacked on Monday by prison inmate Glen Worme.

Richardson was at the time on assignment at the St. George’s Magistrate’s Court when the incident occurred.

Worme was among a group of four prisoners being escorted to the prisoners’ holding cell at the court when he launched his attack on Richardson.

The 20-year old youngster who was handcuffed to another prisoner rushed onto the Journalist, and with the use of his right foot kicked him on the chest.

Richardson rocked back a few inches before tumbling over a walkway plunging about five feet below onto the ground.
