The Communication Relation Department (CRD) of the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) has confirmed that an investigation has been launched into what can be described as inappropriate actions taken by a police officer against a female reveler during the Sauteurs, St. Patrick’s J’ouvert celebrations last week Tuesday.
An approximately 5 seconds long video went viral on social media during the course of last week on the incident.
Viewers could see what appears to be a fully uniformed officer pushing and kicking a woman in the crowd.
Eyewitnesses told this newspaper that the altercation, which led to the police officer, receiving a hot slap in his face, occurred after the young lady proceeded to dance on him while he was on duty.
This newspaper understands that the woman involved and the police officer in question are from the village in St. Patrick and are often involved in small arguments.
Speaking with THE NEW TODAY last week Thursday, Head of CRD, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Sylvan Mc Intyre, acknowledged that some members of the Force have seen the video.
Without revealing any personal information about the police officer, ASP Mc Intyre confirmed that an investigation into the incident is currently taking place.
THE NEW TODAY understands the police officer is assigned to the Grenville Police Station.
