Pembroke ‘mental health emergency’ ends without incident

A “mental health emergency” has concluded without injury, a police spokesman said this afternoon.

Members of the public were urged earlier to keep their distance from the scene.

A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said at about 4.15pm: “The mental health emergency at a Pembroke Parish location has concluded without incident.

“The individual involved is unharmed and is being medically assessed.”

Police negotiators were at the scene earlier with the person in question, as efforts were made to safely resolve the matter.

Residents were urged not to take images of the situation or post anything on social media.

The police spokesman added: “We realise that some members of the public have become aware of what is happening.

“We are appealing to you, please do not do anything to exacerbate the situation.

“Please refrain from recording images and circulating on social media or sharing with others.

“This is an extremely sensitive matter and we thank you for your co-operation and understanding.”
