‘Fighting, Using Helmets And Throwing Bottles’

June 25, 2020

The police are investigating a “disturbance” which occurred at Chaplin Bay in Warwick last night which reportedly involved a “large group of individuals gathered in the area fighting, using helmets and throwing bottles.”

A police spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Police Service is investigating a disturbance which occurred at Chaplin Bay, Warwick at around 8:20 p.m. on Wednesday, 24th June.

“Police received a number of calls around that time, reporting a large group of individuals gathered in the area fighting, using helmets and throwing bottles.

“Upon police arrival, most of the individuals had already dispersed or were in the process of leaving the scene. Those spoken to, declined to provide any information to officers including members of the Criminal Investigations Unit, who attended the scene.

“Out of an abundance of caution and to provide reassurance to the Warwick community, police maintained a high visibility presence in the area.

“Police later received reports of a male arriving at King Edward VII Hospital with a stab wound to his arm.

“However, there is nothing to confirm the injured male was involved in the Chaplin Bay incident. He declined to provide any information to police as to how he sustained the injury.”

    To the Powers that be… Our Children are Lost – So ridiculously sad and hurtful.

    remember how the Government cut the police budget by $4m in the last budget?

    Who picked up all the bottles?

    Or were they just left for others to deal with?

    I dont understand how they can all disperse and somehow get away with it. It is not like there are a 100 escape routes. I suggest the police train on how to set up road blocks and get serious with the job.

    This violent incident is yet another sad societal milestone for Bermuda. We are not feeling safe here.
    Tourists won’t feel safe.
    What a blight on beautiful Chaplin Bay.

    Love your family. Love your friends. Love your neighbors. Love strangers. If someone looks sad, build them up. If they look hurt, care for them. If they’re lost/destitute and you’re able, give them a job or a helping hand. The more we love and care for one another, the less violence we’ll see. We never truly know what others are going through, but we must still look outside of our own selves and care for each other. Bermudians are stronger when we care about each other.

    If 35 people were put in court, we could begin to see improvement, but the public need to inform authorities as soon as they see those numbers like 15 persons gathering without beach chairs and coolers.
