Police are probing the circumstances which led to a police constable being discovered at his home in Cunupia on Wednesday, with injuries about his body.

Guardian Media understands the PC was found by officers from the Professional Standards Bureau (PSB), who were attempting to execute a warrant.

According to a police report, at about 6 am, two acting corporals from PSB went to the home of the police constable to execute a warrant. 

However, the corporals told investigating officers that the PC became aggravated when he realised the reason for their visit and locked himself in a bathroom. He reportedly threatened to end his life. 

The PSB officers entered the home and found a trail of blood leading to a bathroom. 

Upon checking, they discovered the PC sitting in a shower stall, holding a knife.

The PSB officers attempts to reason with him proved in vain, and in response to his demands, a WPC was called to the scene.  Police said she was able to calm him down and de-escalate the situation.

The PC was then taken to the Chaguanas District Health Facility where he was treated.  He was then transferred to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex in Mount Hope, where he was further treated and warded.
