A BRIDGETOWN VENDOR is crying victimisation at the hands of some members of the Royal Barbados Police Force.

The situation developed to a point where Yvette Jordan said she was forced to make a formal complaint to the Force’s Office of Professional Responsibility earlier this month, and was told the matter would be handed over to the Commissioner of Police.

Jordan, who has been selling clothing for close to five years in Busby Alley, said her ordeal started Thursday, February 9, when she had an argument with another vendor, Andrea Stewart. The two were close friends and are now estranged.

“She hit me over my eye with a waterfall [metal object where clothing is hung] and ran straight to the police station,” Jordan told the WEEKEND NATION. (YB)
