However, all four individuals were still detained and are expected to be placed on identification parades over this weekend.

The incident reportedly took place at 10:30 pm on February 10.

Senior Superintendent Ajith Persad, along with Inspector Godfrey Vincent and Sgt Anthony Williams, has been supervising inquiries into the report.

Thus far, two persons have already been held, charged and brought before the courts in relation to this incident.
