(NY POST) – A United Nations diplomat from the Caribbean allegedly punched his wife in the face in Brooklyn on Friday — but NYPD cops couldn’t arrest him because he has diplomatic immunity, police sources said.
Sehon Marshall, 43, who serves as a counsellor for the Permanent Mission of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, allegedly decked his wife, Sandra Marshall, 36, after a verbal fight broke out at their Canarsie house at 1:15 a.m., police sources said.
Cops launched an investigation and found that Marshall struck the woman with a closed fist, leaving her with a bloody lip, the sources said.
But officers couldn’t arrest Marshall because he’s protected by a law forbidding prosecution of foreign diplomats in the US, the sources said.
According to the publication, Marshall wasn’t available for comment at his home on East 92nd Street and Avenue N on Friday afternoon.
His wife, who refused medical attention, declined to comment.
