Police save woman from armed attacker

A man, who was allegedly intending to carry out an attack on a woman, is remanded into police custody after appearing before an Arima Magistrate today, charged with possession of a firearm and ammunition.

Kenton Joseph, 22, of Mt. Zion Road, Arima, was denied bail when he appeared before Magistrate Debby-Ann Bassaw in the Arima 1st Magistrates’ Court on Monday 28th May, 2018.

The matter has been postponed to Tuesday 29th May, 2018.

Internationally: Westminster attacker identified

The man believed to have carried out the attack in Westminster has been named by police as Khalid Masood.

Kent-born Masood, who died in the attack, was not the subject of any current police investigations, but had a range of previous convictions.

The 52-year-old was believed to have been living in the West Midlands.

The so-called Islamic State group has said it was behind the attack, in which PC Keith Palmer, Aysha Frade and US tourist Kurt Cochran were killed.

Eight arrests were made in London and Birmingham following Wednesday's attack.
