Accused Told – Stay 500 Metres Away from Your Brother

A 26-year-old man was ordered to stay 500 metres away from his brother after appearing before the Princes Town Magistrates’ Court yesterday charged with s*xual pe*******on of a child.

The order was given by Magistrate Indira R. Misir-Gosine as part of the man’s bail conditions which were set at $175,000. The accused was also made to report to his local police station three times a week.

The defendant, a lorryman, who resides in Princes Town, will reappear before the court on May 14th.

He was arrested and charged by WPC Hamilton of the Southern Division Child Protection Unit on April 14th.

The charge arose following a report made by a 12-year-old boy to Emergency Response Patrol (ERP) officers who were on patrol in February 2019 that his brother allegedly forced him to perform oral s*x on him.

The matter was subsequently referred to the CPU and an investigation launched which led to arrest and charge laid against the accused.

The investigation was supervised by Insp (Ag.) Khan of the Southern CPU.

2 Women granted bail for illegal vending

Two women were arrested, charged, and granted bail for pitching stalls and obstructing footpaths in Port-of-Spain.

In the first case, a 39-year-old woman was granted bail with a surety in the amount of $10,000 by Justice of the Peace Oliver Boodhu for pitching a stall, wilful obstruction, and offering for sale marketable commodities, disorderly behaviour, and resisting arrest.

On April 14th, officers of the Port-of-Spain Municipal Police Task Force (PoSMPTF) were on mobile patrol along Frederick Street in the vicinity of Hart Street, when they observed a woman standing behind a makeshift stall offering assorted snacks, mints, and drinks for sale.

PC Mc Guirk informed the woman of the offence committed, cautioned her and attempted to place her under arrest. However, she behaved in an irate manner. PC Mc Guirk with the help of other officers restrained and placed her under arrest.

The accused, of Siew Sankar Drive, Don Miguel Road, San Juan, was taken to the Port-of-Spain City Police Headquarters where she was charged.

In the second incident, a 52-year-old woman, of Maloney Gardens, was granted station bail in the amount of $1,500 for pitching a stall, wilful obstruction, and offering for sale marketable commodities.

On April 14th, officers of the PoSMPTF were on mobile patrol when they observed a makeshift stall containing a quantity of a marketable commodity. The officers further observed that the said stall was placed on the footpath causing pedestrians to manoeuvre onto the roadway.

PC Mc Guirk approached the defendant, identified himself, cautioned and informed her of the offences committed. The defendant was subsequently arrested and later charged for the offences.

Both women are expected to reappear virtually before the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court on June 14th.

PC Ramlochan rewarded for his kindness

Police Constable Rudy Ramlochan was recognised at today’s media briefing for his stellar service, after he and fellow officer PC Roop, assisted a distressed female motorist on January 17th, 2021.

Diandra Fourniller was heading home late at night when she got a flat tyre along the Sir Solomon Hochoy Highway. PCs Ramlochan and Roop, on seeing the vehicle, enquired about the situation and proceeded to change the tyre.

Diandra shared her story with the TTPS saying:
“I was thankful because it was dark and I was alone. I was one hour away from home and on the other hand, roadside assistance would’ve taken some time to arrive. I know police officers are not obligated to extend these courtesies so I am really grateful for the assistance.”

PC Ramlochan, enthused by the recognition, said he wants to work harder knowing that the public is appreciative of his efforts as an officer. He also shared that he takes his duties as an officer seriously and is always ready to act when necessary.

The presentation was made by DCP, Intelligence and Investigations, McDonald Jacob.
