Police arrested a female motorcyclist on Friday (March 5), following the report of an assault on two regiment soldiers “who were carrying out security duties at the Bulls Head Car Park COVID testing site”.
A spokesman said the incident occurred around 12pm, when “a female riding a black Click motorcycle, attempted to use a Corporation of Hamilton swipe card to gain access to the parking lot but was unsuccessful”.
“The regiment personnel advised her to take a ticket from the machine and to sort out the issue at a later time.
“The woman instead allegedly reversed her bike then drove it into one of the soldiers. She reportedly struck him on the right leg and rode over his right foot.
“The suspect is said to have again reversed her bike, drove toward the other soldier and rode over his left foot…and then rode off, but remained at the location where she was eventually located by officers and arrested.”
She was “subsequently interviewed at the Hamilton Police Station and granted police bail”, the spokesman added.
Inquiries into both matters remain ongoing and anyone with information on either incident is urged to call 211 or, the main police number, 295-0011.
