According to witnesses, three or four officers and court house security personnel were seen wrestling a man to the ground outside court room No. 2 in the second floor section of the building.
Apparently, a man who had just made a court appearance on a cocaine-related charge in Summary Court was the suspect involved in the altercation. One officer who was hurt suffered a twisted knee, according to reports, while the other sustained a hand injury. Both were expected to recover.
The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service released the following statement about the incident: “Shortly after 10am Tuesday, two police officers were injured as they arrested a suspect at the George Town Court House.
“The suspect, who had been wanted in relation to an aggravated burglary, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary, resisting arrest and assault.”
