In custody


Share post:

A 46-year-old man was last night being questioned in connection with a string of criminal matters, including the assault of two British visitors last October.
Devere Crawford, 46, of Eden Lodge, St Michael, was arrested by detectives in the Dutch territory of St Maarten and brought back to Barbados over the weekend.
Investigators have described Crawford as a person of interest who is believed to have fled Barbados shortly after the attack on the two British visitors in Sunset Crest, Holetown, St James.
A bulletin had been issued for his arrest since November last year.
The incident involving the two female tourists has sparked a travel advisory by Britain to its nationals travelling to Barbados.
Crawford was reportedly in Dutch custody since February, but was recently released to Barbadian law enforcement authorities.
Investigators also described the wanted man as a person of interest in connection with a number of robberies as well.
