The police say they have stepped up their search for more individuals who were part of a group intimidating passengers in and around the Corporate area as taxi and bus operators staged a protest on Monday.

The operation to locate the perpetrators follows the arrest and charge of one man who was captured in the video carrying out a similar act in downtown Kingston.

The man who has been identified as Ramone Silvera gave his profession as a professional clown.

He has since been charged with assault, disorderly conduct, and indecent language.

On Monday scores of taxi and bus operators staged a protest and withdrew their service, this resulted in hundreds of commuters in and around downtown Kingston being left stranded.

The operators on Sunday afternoon voted to support an islandwide strike for three days, starting Monday, after the Government failed to grant a traffic ticket amnesty as requested.

But during the strike, there were some taxi operators who opted to continue working, several of these taxi operators were attacked and beaten by men posing as ‘loader men’.

Passengers traveling in their vehicles were also removed by loader men.

Police said they were able to apprehend a number of people and so far one of the men seen intimidating the passengers was arrested and charged.

Police say they are now searching for other individuals who are believed to be a part of this group that was carrying out illegal activities.
