Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover, ‘Bad Looking Bikers’ Come to Aid of Officer
A 46-year-old local man attacked and injured an officer after he was confronted over 3 outstanding warrants.
On June 7, 2017 a Kingston Police officer was on bicycle patrol in the area of Princess Street and Bagot Street when he observed the accused. The officer recognized the accused and knew he was currently wanted.
At approximately 2:00 p.m. the officer dismounted from his bike and approached the accused and advised him of the warrants for his arrest. The accused attempted to flee and when the officer moved to stop him, the accused grabbed the officer and during the struggle they fell to the ground.
While some citizens stood by to film the attack on the officer, the two heroes who looked like villains came to the rescue. Two retired military police officers riding by on their Harley’s, noticed the officer get off his bike and approach the accused. In an instant they saw the attack and quickly stopped their motorcycles across the street. Jumping off their rides the two heroes ran across the street and managed to pull the accused off the officer who was on his back with the accused over top him.
With the assistance of the retired officers, the accused was taken to the ground and held under control until other officers arrived. While some citizens continued to film the incident with their phones, the accused was brought under control and handcuffed.
The accused was transported to police headquarters where he was held to attend a bail hearing the following day.
The accused was charged with assault police, resist arrest, and breach of probation.
The officer suffered a minor injury as a result of the attack. The military and police share a strong common bond of serving and protecting. Kingston Police would like to thank these two heroes for coming to the aid of one of our officers.
