Operations at Her Majesty’s Prison (1735) came to a halt on Thursday and continued into Friday due to an altercation between an inmate and a prison guard. OBSERVER media was reliably informed that a prisoner by the name of Collin ‘Bling’ Browne stabbed a junior officer in the forearm during a scuffle.
Subsequent to the altercation, the main yard of the prison was placed on lockdown. Minister in charge of prisons, Steadroy ‘Cutie’ Benjamin, met with prison officials yesterday to discuss the matter.
He told OBSERVER media that the injuries to the guard were not life threatening.
“We had a meeting today [Friday] and I am very happy to report that it wasn’t a serious incident at all and the matter has in fact been thoroughly investigated and the issue has been resolved to the satisfaction of the prison authority,” Benjamin reported.
He added that the prisoner involved in the fracas is being dealt with in accordance with the prison code in relation to any prisoner who misconducts himself.
Benjamin did not say if or when the lock down would be discontinued.
