A 42-year-old woman police constable was detained for obstruction, after she allegedly attempted to prevent investigators from arresting a man at her house. 

The female police officer was detained at her home along Oropune Gardens on Wednesday. 

Police received information that a 20-year-old man, who is wanted in connection for a series of criminal activities including shooting related offences, was at the home. 

As a result, a team of officers from the Northern Division led by Snr Sup Ramkhellawan, visited the home with the aim of arresting the suspect. 

However, while attempting the arrest, the woman, her 20-year-old daughter and her 22-year-old son intervened and resisted. 

After they refused to comply with instructions and allegedly cursed at the responding officers, they were all detained, and taken into custody.
