The Canadian arm of INTERPOL has written to Grenada’s Acting Commissioner of Police, Winston James on the sexual assault matter involving a Grenadian-born Canadian woman at the hands of a local police officer.
Well-placed sources told THE NEW TODAY newspaper that the victim, Eleanor Peterkin-Walters reported the matter to the Canadian police on her return to Canada.
A source who asked not to be named said that the Canadian police arm of INTERPOL sent a letter to Acting Commissioner James on the issue.
Inspector of Police, Clevroy Antoine who was attached to the South St. George Police Station was charged last month with Indecent Assault in connection with an alleged sexual offence act against Peterkin-Walters who has family connections in the La Borie area of St. Paul’s.
The alleged incident reportedly took place on the compound of the Police Station where the woman went to make a report on another female.
The source said that the complainant gave the Canadian police a graphic description of the encounter with Insp. Antoine which is “very embarrassing” for the local police force.
He spoke of Peterkin-Walters alleging that the police officer had at one time pulled out his private part from his pants and that she had to restrain him.
Insp. Antoine has been placed on EC$8000.00 bail for the alleged offence.
Meanwhile, another senior police officer under a cloud of suspicion has written to James in connection with allegations of sexual impropriety being made against him that he had fled the Country.
The source said that the officer who recently resigned from RGPF expressed an interest in taking legal action against those scandalising his name.
RGPF has already indicated that it has received no reports about one of its members impregnating an under-aged school girl.
