A police constable is among a group of men who were this morning mobbed by residents of a Clarendon community after the men attempted to rob a woman.

It is alleged that the policeman was one of three men who were attempting to break into a house in Morgan's District near Spaldings, Clarendon about 3 o'clock.

Two of the men escaped, but the constable was held and beaten by residents before being handed over to the police.

The cop who received several blows has since been admitted in hospital in serious condition.

The police are yet to release a statement on the matter.
