CoP: Men involved in UWI kidnapping are not from protective services


    The persons arrested last night for a kidnapping in UWI are not members of the Police Service or Defence Force.

    This is the assurance from Police Commissioner Gary Griffith who says there is a newspaper article which could mislead the public.

    His statement comes hours after police rescued Maria Dass in Caura last night after she was snatched from campus yesterday afternoon.

    Mr Griffith says the article headlined “University worker attacked by ‘cop’, ‘soldier’” is in total contrast to the facts regarding this case.

    The men arrested were in dressed in a police jacket and camouflage gear.

    Mr Griffith says the suspects are in police custody as enquiries continue.
