The Jamaica Constabulary Force is reporting that a police officer who was stabbed over 14 times, by a man armed with a knife, during a robbery attempt, near the May Pen Toll Plaza, in Clarendon, on Saturday, February 27, is presently still at hospital in serious, but stable condition.
Reports are that about 3:00 am, the officer who is stationed in St Catherine, was driving to work, when his vehicle drove across some debris along the highway and picked up a puncture.
The officer pulled over alongside the road and was in the process of changing his tyre, when he noticed a man armed with a long knife, who walked up to him.
The man demanded that the officer hand over his money, and also empty all his pockets on the trunk of his car. The officer refused to carry out the demand, and a tussle developed between him and the armed robber.
During the tussle, the cop was stabbed over 14 times by his attacker, but somehow he managed to fight off his attacker, who fled the scene on foot.
The officer also managed to drive himself to the May Pen Hospital, where he was treated and admitted.
