Reports are that the well-known male judge was struck in the face by the woman

Details of the conversation that led to the attack are unclear at this time, but immediately after the incident, law enforcement officials rushed to escort the woman from the location.

It is not clear what action, if any, was taken against the female following the incident that drew a large crowd.

"All I know is that I see the judge talking to the woman, and then minutes after I heard a loud slap echoing across the court grounds," said one woman, who claimed she was an eyewitness.

"When I look, is the woman me see a fling box on the judge," the alleged eyewitness said.

Law enforcement officials reportedly then went to the compound and apprehended the woman.

The incident has brought into sharp focus the safety of officials who work in the island's justice system.

Sources claim the woman who carried out the attack is a close relative of the judge.
