BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS (Tuesday 23rd March 2021)-Vivian Lewis-Browne has expressed concern about the nature of police professionalism after she was allegedly threatened by a knife-holding neighbour in her home community of Molineux on Saturday 13th  March 2021.
 
Lewis-Browne, who resides abroad, says she recently returned to the island to settle the estate of her father, John Lewis, who died in March 2020. 
 
She informed this media house that while at her father’s property, she along with others discovered that debris was being thrown in the yard.  Furthermore, as told by her, a neighbor- who was named during the interview-had been seen tossing refuse in the yard.
 
According to Lewis-Browne, when she and her brother sought to speak with the neighbour, he reportedly wielded a machete. 
 
She went on to indicate that the incident continued to the point where the neighbour came to the dividing fence with a silver knife allegedly shouting at her in making a death threat.
 
Details gathered are that the police were called and two officers; one of whom was a recruit were dispatched from the Tabernacle Police Station.
 
It is alleged that while the police were on the scene, the neighbour, still holding the knife, insisted that he was right when he openly threatened the woman.
 
Lewis-Browne disclosed that she was asked by the responding officers to make a report at the district police station and told that the matter would be investigated.
 
She reported that she immediately followed the officers’ request and went to the Tabernacle Police Station where she made a formal report. She pointed out that ten days later, the neighbour has not been cautioned or charged with regard to the complaint and no response has been given to her by the police. 
 
To this end, she is questioning the professionality of the police and says she is concerned about returning to her father’s property and for her safety. She is also claiming that the police are allowing this matter to go on without resolution as she is due to return abroad where she works and lives. 
 
The Labour Spokesman reached out to Sergeant Simeon Liburd of the Tabernacle Police Station who informed that the matter is being investigated while directing that the force’s Public Relations Officer be contacted.
