Teenager Accused Of Assaulting Police Officer


Tribune Staff Reporter


A 19-year-old appeared in Magistrates Court yesterday facing multiple criminal charges less than 24 hours after an alleged confrontation with police officers at her home turned physical.

Dahene Nonord was brought before Magistrate Guillimina Archer on ten charges: disorderly behaviour, obscene language, obstruction, assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, disorderly behaviour in a police station and four counts of threats of death.

Officers, on May 19, reportedly went to execute a warrant for a man who lived on the same compound as Nonord when it was claimed that she and other members of the community “attacked the officers”.

Nonord, however, denied the allegations and pleaded not guilty to the charges.

It is claimed that Nonord acted in a disorderly fashion and cursed police when they appeared at her home on the day in question.

It is further alleged that she obstructed and assaulted Inspector T Sands while he was executing his duties. While resisting arrest by WPC 3389 Roberts, Nonord allegedly threatened Inspector Sands, WPC Roberts, PC 3120 Sands and PC 3551 Pratt who took her to the Carmichael Road police station.

It is also alleged that she acted in a disorderly fashion at that station.

Attorney Adrian Gibson appeared for Nonord in yesterday’s proceedings.

The teenager of Cowpen Road was granted $5,000 bail in this matter was told she would stand trial on July 28.
