Injured biker is not a suspect

Police say a man seriously injured after a high speed police chase is not a suspect in an attempted armed robbery.

Roger Wood, 20, has suffered a broken pelvis and breaks to his leg after the accident in Prospect. On Friday (8 April), he was flown to the US for treatment.

He was chased by police after two men tried to hold up a George Town bar last week. The pair fled empty handed after threatening staff and customers at Smugglers’ Rum Bar.

But in a statement issued Monday (11 April) a spokeswoman for the RCIPS said, “After reviewing all information available, detectives have concluded that the man involved in a high-speed chase with officers last Thursday night was not involved in the attempted robbery at the Smugglers’ Rum Bar.”

In that statement, police added they chased the motorbike for more than 11 miles.
