KINGSTON, Jamaica - Three men, who have been described by the Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All-Sexuals and Gays (JFLAG) as young men with diverse sexual preferences, were last night arrested by the New Kingston Police following a bust up with a member of the King Alarm security company.

The bust up took place at the JFLAG headquarters at Upper Musgrave Avenue in St Andrew.

The police report that the four men were engaging in rowdy behaviour when the King Alarm Security Company was summoned to quell the disturbance. When the security guard arrived on the scene he was allegedly attacked by the three young men who pelted him with stones.

The guard retaliated by using a baton to subdue his attackers and restrained them until the police arrived and took them into custody. During the fracas a security guard reportedly discharged one round from a pistol assigned to him.

The police say all four persons involved in the bust up will be charged. The three suspected gay men will be charged with disorderly conduct and assault occasioning bodily harm.

The security guard will be charged with assault and discharging a firearm within four yards of a public thoroughfare.

The matter is being investigated by detectives from the New Kingston Police Post.
