Police personnel in May Pen, Clarendon, had to chase and apprehend one of their colleagues after he attempted to flee their custody today.

The incident involving 45-year-old corporal Clevan Dixon took place around 12:30 p.m.

Police personnel were preparing to take Dixon to court on buggery charges when he attempted to stab one of them before dashing outside the station. 

He was chased and was eventually held on the May Pen bridge where he reportedly attempted to jump into the Rio Minho below. 

The accused cop received several minor injuries and was taken to the May Pen Hospital for treatment.

It's expected that the police will lay further charges on Dixon when he is released from hospital.

Dixon who was recently transferred to the May Pen division is alleged to have buggered a 17-year-old boy from the parish in January.
