At last check this afternoon (July 2nd) a 19 year old Sandys parish man who was injured as the passenger on a motorcycle involved in a collision with a car on South Road in Paget near the entrance to Elbow Beach around 10am Sunday, July 1st was airlifted overseas for further medical treatment after initially being admitted to the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit – while the rider, a 49 year old Sandys parish woman, was treated for serious leg and foot injuries and was recovering in stable condition on a general ward at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.

The male driver of the car did not leave the scene and was not arrested following the collision. However, the scene was processed and both vehicles involved have been impounded pending further inquiries.

Formal Complaints Required to Investigate Sexual Abuse Allegations

The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) is aware of recent allegations circulating on social media about separate instances of alleged past inappropriate sexual behaviour.

Members of the public are reminded that formal complaints are required by law in order for the police to investigate such allegations. Online statements and social media posts do not qualify as formal complaints.

We appreciate that this is a sensitive subject and that witnesses and victims are sometimes reluctant to come forward.

Complainants can be assured that they will be treated with dignity and that their investigation will be conducted in strict confidence. Please contact Detective Sergeant Karema Flood of the BPS Vulnerable Persons Unit (VPU) at (441) 247-1150 or e-mail kflood@bps.bm. Alternatively, the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477 can be used to make a report.

The BPS works closely with the Department of Child & Family Services on these matters and we take such allegations seriously. But we continue to caution members of the public about making unsubstantiated statements or circulating rumours on social media that may constitute slander or libel.


All incidents are under investigation. Police are appealing to members of the public who have witnessed these incidents or may have information pertaining to them to contact their respective Police Station, Police Headquarters at 295-0011 or the confidential Crimestoppers Hotline on 1 (800) 623-8477.
