Thursday, June 5, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: On Wednesday evening, five employees of Cavetubing.com, owned by Yohnny Rosado were detained by police in connection with their investigation into the attack on competitor Vitalino Reyes Sr.’s son, Vitalino Jr.
Vitalino Reyes, Jr is recovering from being kicked and hit in the head with a pint bottle at the Long Island Bar one week ago today.
According to attorney Audrey Matura-Shepherd, who has been advising Rosado legally, police have stonewalled her attempts to find out whether the workers are being charged for anything, despite voluntarily giving their statements and cooperating with the investigation.
Police have even refused, according to Matura-Shepherd, to accept her cooperation to bring the workers in to talk if they are not charged.
They hold to the line that the detentions are part of their investigation into the incident.
But Matura-Shepherd notes another unfortunate side effect, that they deprive Rosado of key employees at important times in the cruise ship week.
She describes the situation as “tragic”, as it is clear that none of the men detained had anything to do with the incident.
As of this evening, Thursday, the men will have completed 24 hours in detention.
