Josh Beckham, Allied Security
For operational and legal reasons we need to treat specific details of this incident in confidence however on the 2nd June at approximately 3.30am, Josh was alerted to an incident involving an aggravated assault on one of his team.

Whilst Josh was off duty at the time, he attended the site within five minutes and found the guard had suffered injuries to his jaw, throat area and eye sockets and was experiencing breathing difficulties. Josh provided initial first aid, kept the guard conscious during the 20 minute wait for the arrival of emergency services and eventually accompanied the guard when transferred to hospital in a critical state.

During this time Josh also provided status updates to the local Operations Manager and the site customer.

We are also pleased to advise that the injured guard has fully recovered from the injuries sustained.
