She started to drive away, and he jumped on top of her vehicle and held on while she and her two young children were trying to get away from him. Dwayne finally got off and she and her children went to a friend’s house to get away,” Daugherty said.The victim and children returned to the home during the early morning hours of Saturday. Authorities said Breakiron returned to the residence and entered the house while the family was asleep.Daugherty said, “Dwayne came into the bedroom where they were sleeping and made the victim get out of bed.

Breakiron tried to force the woman to help find the clip, police said.“Dwayne made their mother give him the only cell phone in the house so that no one could call the police,” the police chief cited. Police also said the suspect threatened to strangle the family pet Chinchilla.No word on the connection between the victim and suspect, but Police Chief Daughtery called it domestic violence in an email.last_img read more

In West Indian domestic cricket, he has played for the Windward Islands and the Combined Campuses and Colleges.Sebastien, who is Dominican, was a West Indies cricketer for the Combined Islands and the Windward Islands in the 1970s and 1980s.
