An off-duty Corrections Officer was out jogging early this morning [Feb 3] in Southampton when he was “approached by persons on a motorcycle, who struck him in the head and rode off.”

A police spokesperson said, “At about 6am today, Monday 3rd February, an off-duty Corrections Officer, was out jogging on South Road in Southampton.

“He was approached by persons on a motorcycle, who struck him in the head and rode off.

  1. Damn idiots, hope they get caught and he is in their section.

  2. It would mean that this officer was being observed by this other person for awhile , in order for them to know where he would be at 6:00 am . Is this what Bermuda is coming to ? If so, Who than is safe ?

  3. Oh,I see now says:

    Once apprehended an example has to be made or we set a bad precedent for the safety of our police and corrections personnel
