The Local Enforcement Agency (LESA) has confirmed that the man who allegedly attacked a pregnant policewoman was in fact a warden.

Asked by this newsroom whether he has been suspended, LESA contacted the private agency concerned (Guard & Warden Service House) who said that he has been put 'on leave' until they conclude their internal investigation.

In an earlier statement, LESA said - "It appears that the police are conducting their investigation. The agency is in contact with the private company that employs the warden and is following the case closely".

"While condemning every type of abusive action, Lesa is committed to ensure, together with the private operator, that local wardens behave with dignity and responsibility in the communities they serve "

Last Wednesday, the Police Officers Union said that a man claiming to be a warden had attacked an 8-month pregnant officer.

The man allegedly refused to give way in a traffic situation and at one point left his car to insult the police officer. The officer showed him her badge but the man allegedly replied with more insults.

She told him that she was eight months pregnant but she was attacked again when she started to use her mobile phone as the man believed that she was taking pictures of him. He allegedly ended up banging her car window.
