According to police, the officer who is a Constable who works at a police station in the Police Eastern Division, previously purchased the cellular phone from the outlet. He went to the store at 3.30 pm on Tuesday to complain that the phone was not working.
An argument ensued between the officer and the manager of the store, resulting in the two men starting to fight. The manager was reportedly thrown toward a glass showcase in the store, resulting in him suffering several cuts. Both men later sought medical attention at Port-of-Spain General Hospital, following which, they both made a report at the Central Police Station in Port-of-Spain to Sgt Parmassar who is continuing enquiries.
Yesterday, the cellular phone outlet was closed with a note on the door advising that it would reopen for business today. Contacted for comment yesterday, Deputy Police Commissioner Mervyn Richardson said he was not aware of the incident as no report had reached his desk. He however assured Newsday that he would be looking into the matter.
