An off-duty Police Officer, Hensley Mc Clean is nursing some wounds after being engaged in an altercation with a civilian.
A suspect, Nyran Parris who has been charged with causing grievous harm appeared in court on Monday before Chief Magistrate, Her Honour, Tamara Gill.
He was granted bail in the sum of $15,000.00 with two sureties and is due to re-appear in court on September 2.
A well-placed source told THE NEW TODAY Newspaper the incident occurred at a carnival activity last week Saturday night after Parris made several attempts to dance with the girlfriend of the Policeman.
The source said Parris who is a resident of Windsor Forest, St. David’s made the advances to the young lady when Mc Clean visited the bar.
This newspaper understands that when the policeman returned from the bar, the accused again approached the couple.
According to the source, Mc Clean who is attached to the Police Station on the St. George’s Port confronted Parris who allegedly pulled out a knife and started to inflict several chop wounds on him.
The injured Policeman was rushed to the St. George’s General Hospital where he was admitted as a patient.
The 25-year old Parris has been described as one who has a propensity for attacking Police Officers.
Last year, he allegedly physically attacked Immigration Officer, Edward Fortune who was clad in uniform at the St. George’s Bus Terminal.
He was charged for assault on the issue with Fortune. This court matter is also set for September 2, the day as the case for chopping Mc Clean.
This newspaper understands that Parris already has two convictions before local courts for possession of an offensive weapon and causing harm.
