TWO PEOPLE CHARGED IN MAGISTRATE COURT FOR THREE INDICTABLE OFFENSES
In light of concerns expressed on social media by members of the public, following media reports on a matter in which a replica firearm and a knife were reportedly brandished during a confrontation against a food service delivery driver, the Bermuda Police Service wishes to provide the following clarification.
At approximately 7.50pm on Wednesday 28th October 2020, Police responded to a report of a suspicious incident that occurred at an address on Harrington Sound Road, Hamilton Parish. Police immediately began enquires into the matter.
At approximately 9.55pm on the same date, a suspect was arrested in connection with this matter. A search of a residence was conducted and items were seized by Police and a second suspect was subsequently arrested.
Investigators have been in constant contact with the complainant who is assisting them with enquiries into this matter.
A file of evidence was prepared and charges were approved by the Department of Public Prosecutions. The suspects this morning appeared in Magistrates’ Court charged with, (1) Behaving in a threatening Manner, (2) Deprivation of Liberty and (3) Carrying an imitation firearm with criminal intent / to commit an indictable offence – namely Deprivation of Liberty.
The matter was adjourned to the Supreme Court Arraignment Session on the 1st of December 2020 as two of the matters are indicatable only. The defendants were bailed in the amount of $3000 with a like surety, and were instructed not to have any contact with the complainant.
When members of the public wish to register dissatisfaction with the Bermuda Police Service we encourage them to call 211, (24-hour availability). If this contact does not meet their expectations, then consider calling the Incident Commander on 247-1705,
(24- hour availability). This will ensure a more timely and accountable response.
