Security officer’s son intervenes in confrontation with her supervisor and is now being sought after alleged battery

A Ministry of Public Works security supervisor was battered by the son of a security guard as she was making checks at one of the government’s primary schools.

Reports say the Paynters woman went to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and complained that she had been slapped in the face by a young man from Villa, which caused her Samsung A32 cell phone, valued at $1,200, to fall to the ground and become damaged.

Further reports say the supervisor had gone to Villa Primary to check on a female security officer, and the two fell into an argument.

Allegedly, the son of that security officer got between the arguing women and slapped the supervisor in the face; her phone then fell and the screen was shattered.

The Paynters woman was issued with a police medical form and advised to consult a doctor.

An initial search for the alleged offender was carried out by the police, but without success, and inquiries into the incident are continuing.

This offence reportedly occurred at about 5:45 p.m. on Monday, March 6.
