Man denies attack on police officer

A St George's man accused of assaulting a female police sergeant and escaping lawful custody, denied all charges in Magistrates' Court yesterday.

Earlington Robinson, 56, is accused of grabbing Sergeant Kimberly Cowper, 42, around her throat and slamming her head into the ground, knocking her unconscious.

Considering his history of similar incidents, Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner remanded Mr Robinson into custody until January 29 when he will stand trial.

The incident arose after Mr Robinson became agitated with a pest control officer inspecting his property, the prosecution argued.

Mr Robinson will face charges of using threatening language, threatening behaviour, violently resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer and unlawfully escaping police custody.

Meanwhile, a Warwick man pleaded guilty to unlawfully assaulting off-duty police officer Jerome Overbey.

Ross Parsons, 42, was remanded in custody by Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner pending a social inquiry report and a drug-rehabilitation assessment. He will appear in court again on November 27.

Incident: Police are seen on Anchorage Road in St George's after an officer was assaulted while performing her duty earlier this week. Appearing in court yesterday Earlington Robinson, of St George's, denied the assault.
