The TTPS Tobago Division has launched an investigation into a melée between police officers and civilians.

A video with the altercation, which occurred over the weekend at the Dwight Yorke Stadium, was widely shared on various social media platforms.

The video—of duration 1:13 minutes—shows several policemen subduing a young man, who is seen kicking and cuffing them. One policeman is also seen responding to the attack.

Two civilians were involved in the brawl but others who attempted to get involved were prevented from doing so by officers standing by.

Eventually, the man was subdued, handcuffed and put in the back of a marked police vehicle.

Commenting on the situation, ACP of the Tobago Division Vernon Roberts says the matter is under investigation.
