Beau Bassin: PIO Sergeant Assaulted Outside His Home

Must Read

Doing his duty to enforce law and order, a police sergeant assigned to the Passport and Immigration Office (PIO) had to go to hospital for treatment after being beaten up by an individual in Beau Bassin. This was because he stopped a motorcycle driver who was not wearing a helmet. The 55-year-old sergeant claims to be able to identify his assailant and the rump passenger who was in his company.

The incident took place at around 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 7. The police sergeant was driving home when he came across an individual on a motorcycle who was not wearing a motorcycle helmet. He stopped his car and identified himself as a police officer before informing the driver, who was in the company of a rump passenger, that he was committing the offence of “failing to wear crash helmet” and would be prosecuted.

The two men immediately fled on the blue motorcycle. Arriving at his home, the two men came towards him and began to act aggressively towards him. One of them ripped out his ignition key, and the second punched him in the face with his fist before fleeing.

He was bleeding from the nose and in pain. His face was swollen. The sergeant was taken to Victoria Hospital, Candos, for treatment. He was later released to return home.
