Twenty-five-year-old Police Constable Keenon Bennett is tonight at the K.H.M.H. recuperating after he was knocked down on Wednesday night. Bennett, a member of the Special Patrol Unit, was on duty, patrolling Saint Martin’s Area on a motorcycle. When PC Bennett was at the corner of Mahogany and Santa Barbara Streets, he was hit from the rear by a white vehicle. The driver of the vehicle attempted to escape but as ASP Alejandro Cowo explained, he was quickly caught by police officers who were also in the area.
