Senator claims he was ‘almost murdered’ at pizza place

Police are investigating a brawl at a pizza take-away on Carmichael Road on Friday.

Police said they responded to a disturbance call around 7:30 p.m. where it was reported that a group of males was fighting. 

One juvenile boy was taken to hospital where he was treated and discharged, police said.

However, Senator Ranard Henfield, who said he witnessed the incident, claimed he had to save several patrons of Little Caesar’s Pizza after a “gang of men” entered the establishment “stabbing and chopping”.

In a post on his Facebook page on Saturday, Henfield said he was standing in line when the boys burst into the establishment. 

“Rocks flew inside and people were falling all over each other,” he wrote.

“One staff member passed out. One victim of repeated stabs jumped over the counter.

“The security got hit with a rock like a fast ball at the World Series.

“I tried my best to save as much people as I could. The surveillance camera caught everything. The police arrived 30 minutes later.

“I left once I gave the police a statement and up to that point the ambulance had not arrived.”

Henfield also said he told his family he was “almost murdered” at the establishment.

He said the “guys with the knives and cutlass were all under 18”.

He added: “When a group of boys can burst into a crowded business establishment, slashing and stabbing… I realize, this place is too far gone!”
