TWO senior police officers have appeared before a Chaguanas magistrate charged with assaulting a woman at the Chaguanas Police Station.
Snr Supt Samuel Seepersad, 58, of the Central Division, appeared before Senior Magistrate Wendy Dougdeen-Bally. He is charged with committing an act of harassment on a woman between March and June.
And acting Supt Rohan Pardasie, 58, attached to the Southern Division was charged with committing an act of indecent assault on a woman in 2014.
Both offences were said to have occurred at the Chaguanas Police Station.
The magistrate granted Seepersad continuing bail of $100,000 to be approved by a clerk of the peace. He is to reappear on August 14.
