Acting Police Commissioner Milton Desir has issued a warning to citizens against obstructing cops engaged in carrying out their lawful duties.

The warning came after reports that an off duty Special Police Constable was attacked and injured while trying to break up a fight in Vieux Fort.

The officer has been identified as Dennis Serieux who is attached to the Bicycle Patrol of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) in Castries.

Serieux was rushed to hospital by ambulance following the attack on Sunday evening and has since been discharged.

“There have been reports that this officer was in fact involved in a fight,” Acting Police Commissioner Desir told reporters on Friday.

But Desir said a preliminary investigation shows that he went to try to make peace in an ongoing matter.

According to the Acting Police Chief, members of the public have a duty to assist officers in ‘addressing situations’.

But he warned that citizens should not  obstruct the officers or prevent them from carrying out their lawful duties.
