While addressing the frustrated community members, Wax assured the community that the matter would be dealt with speedily and he invited the community to come forward with any evidence of wrong doing.

“Where criminal charges are pursued through the police, the community should work with them in their efforts to conduct a full investigation,” Wax explained, who urged the community to be patient while the police and the City investigate the allegations. “The City will liaise with the community leadership to find a resolution to these issues,” Wax concluded.
