A police officer assigned to the Scene of Crime Office (SOCO) was injured on Wednesday November 2. It was during an altercation that an individual would have launched a pickax to his head.
While people were busy cutting branches, one of them fell on a vehicle of SOCO. The police stopped the vehicle for an inventory. That’s when a fight broke out between the police officers and residents of Goodlands.
In a fit of anger, an individual would have thrown a pickax in their direction. A policeman was hit by the pickax and was wounded. A police investigation has been opened.
