New Amsterdam rocked by a spate of robberies

Police in Berbice are investigating a seven-man armed gang operating out of Mount Sinai, one of the suburbs of New Amsterdam, referred to as Angoy’s Avenue. One of the gang members was arrested on Friday 17 June.
On the morning of Sunday 18 June, the gang reportedly responded by attacking four homes, successfully entering two and terrorizing the families, as they took away cash and other valuables.
Divisional Commander, Assistant Commissioner Ian Amsterdam is of the view that Sunday’s attack was in retaliation of the arrest of a gang member on Friday.
Veronica Balak, 69, of Lot 5 Mount Sinai, was reportedly beaten and robbed by the said gang. According to Balak who lives alone, at about 03:00h on Sunday she heard banging on her door and then four men appeared in her bedroom: “When them come in me tell them me na go holla, an they ask fo money and gold but I tell them that I is a pensioner.”
The elderly woman noted that of the four men, one was armed with a gun, one with a cutlass and one with a crowbar. The defenceless woman related: “When me tell them that me na get gold, them start beat me up, dem knock me all up in me head….”
She said that they ransacked her home and took all of the money she had which was less than $20,000.

Within the hour, four other places were attacked: Budhan’s Housing Scheme, Mount Sinai, including a grocery store, and three houses.
Oliver Ross says his wife was assaulted and a shot fired at him as bandits entered his home. He said it was after 04:30 on Father’s Day when three men entered his Lot 39 home while two remained under his house: “Two of them had guns and one was armed with a cutlass. By the time I heard strange sounds they were already in the house. They put the guns to our head and said bring all the money and the gold and everything that you got.”
Ross said he appealed to the thieves saying that he and his pregnant wife were only middle class and not wealthy but it made no difference as there were threats made to rape his wife: “He grab my wife and pulled her by her hair and I tried to stop him and then he fired a shot at me.”
He said the men ransacked the home during the five minutes they spent and took what they could. It was reported to Police that the bandits relieved Ross of $78,000, a cellular phone, a television set, a tablet and a laptop computer.
At Lot 31 Budhan’s Housing Scheme, Ingrid Soohan, 67, reported that bandits broke the padlock off of her gate and were attempting to get into the downstairs apartment. At the time, she was up already doing her morning chores and thought it was her downstairs tenant returning home. The elderly woman said she called out to her tenant, greeting him and that might have scared the bandits off.
Also at Lot 9 Budhan’s Housing Scheme, householders were alerted after two men with guns had wrenched open a kitchen window. They called out to a neighbour who reported that they were two others under the house.
After the alarm was raised the men jumped over a fence at the front yard and ran further into the scheme.
According to Amsterdam, during last week Police officers were on patrol and in the vicinity of the Berbice River Bridge they intercepted a car and took the driver into custody after not being convinced that he was waiting for a passenger to return with his $300 taxi fare.
However, the following day surveillance footage revealed that a car fitting the description of the one that was parked at D’Edward Village was the car which

dropped the men off before the robbery at D’Edward Village earlier that night.
Based on information provided by the driver of the alleged getaway car, Police arrested a suspected gang member on Friday.
The gang is also linked to a robbery of a New Amsterdam Market vendor at his New Street, East Canje home three weeks ago when $1 million in cellular phone cards were stolen.
Meanwhile, two persons are in custody in connection with the Father’s Day robberies. Andrew Carmichael

Looks like it is business as usual under the PNC. They claimed to be able to stop crime but the honeymoon is over and the chinese businesses returns to be the favorite target of PNC supporters looking to rob and kill.

Looks like the PNC police looking for a raise everytime they do their jobs:

by four armed bandits. However, the efforts of public spirited citizens and police officers led to the successful capture of one of them. The incident took place around 12: 00 hrs.

Footage from GST supermarket’s CCTV cameras showed that the four men rode into the store’s compound and entered the building under the guise of regular customers. Minutes later, two of the men who were armed, approached the cashier and demanded cash and other valuables. Meanwhile, one of the bandits kept watch at the supermarket’s door. Another took cell phones from other employees along with gold chains and rings.
One of the bandits, dressed in jeans and what appeared to be a white shirt and red cap, secured the backpack with the ill-gotten gains and fled the scene. Alarmed by the screams of the owners, neighbours gave chase to the men who ran into Festival City Exit.
One eye witness said, “We hear de people dem screaming out ‘Thief !Thief! And we come out and we see them so we run behind them. But they run into the streets over there (Festival City Exit) thinking that they gun get away. But remember now, dem street got a set ah cul-de-sac and duh is how we know that dem bannas is nah from round here.

“But the police an all is another session because we call dem long, long and dem ain’t turn up. If they de turn up quick we woulda ketch dem other two men who run in the same area. But is just a few of us went behind them and we couldn’t handle all of them by we self.”
The owners of the supermarket were however, reluctant to speak to the media. One employee nonetheless expressed his disappointment with the tardiness of the police.
The Chinese national said, “I call police long, long time. They take long to come but when they want something they come quick. They here in no time…”
This newspaper understands that the police are treating the matter as an attempted robbery and it is currently being investigated.

Kurupung gold miner bound, beaten to death

Shawn Mc Donald, the porkocker who was found dead at Kurupung last Monday, was bound hand and foot and beaten to death.

This was revealed yesterday during a postmortem, which showed that the 43-year-old sustained a brutal beating.
The attack left him with injuries to the head, a broken shoulder, and a deep cut to the mouth that reportedly caused him to suffocate on his own blood.
His brother, Odinga Mc Donald, who witnessed the postmortem, said that he was also told that there was evidence that the killers had tied his sibling’s limbs.
A police source said that a length of rope was tied to one of the slain man’s wrists.
While the motive for the killing is unclear, Kaieteur News understands that police are looking for three suspects in connection with the killing.
There are reports that the men were seen placing the body in a metal container.
Odinga Mc Donald said that information he received indicated that his brother, who is from Amelia’s Ward, Linden, was slain some time between last Sunday and 16.00 hrs on Monday.
But relatives only learnt of the tragedy on Wednesday, when someone contacted his mother and said, ‘Shawn dead and the body coming out.”
The brother said that he travelled to CID Headquarters, Eve Leary, where police confirmed that they had brought out the body of a ‘Shawn Mc Donald’ from the interior. He subsequently identified the body.
Odinga Mc Donald said that his brother was the eldest of four siblings and had worked in the interior for several years.
Shawn Mc Donald is the ninth person murdered in an interior location for the year.

Bandits broke into vehicle of overseas-based Guyanese

An overseas-based Guyanese who recently returned home on vacation fell victim to the country’s current crime situation, after his car was broken into on Wednesday and an undisclosed sum of cash and other valuables stolen.
Reports are that around 14:00h, Dr Rudy Jadoopat parked his vehicle a short distance from the popular M&M Snackette in the vicinity of the Demerara Harbour Bridge, Peters Hall, East Bank Demerara and went into the Snackette to make a purchase when the bandit(s) struck.
Reports are that upon return, Dr Jadoopat found a window of the vehicle smashed and a number of items, including his cellular phones, cameras, important documents and an undisclosed sum of cash, along with other items missing.
It is suspected that the perpetrator(s) had been trailing the overseas-based Guyanese and as he stopped, the opportunity was used to break into the vehicle.
The police were summoned and have since secured the footage from surveillance cameras in the area, which they are reviewing for clues and the possible identities of the bandit(s).

Tirbeni was then awakened by gun butts to the head, whilst the bandits demanded cash and jewellery. He was placed to kneel with his hands behind his head, and then shot once to the right arm. He also received cuts to the head from the beating.

The bandits then ransacked the entire home before making good their escape with jewellery and an undisclosed sum of cash.

Relatives rushed Tirbeni to a city hospital, where he was admitted and is said to be in a stable condition.

The Tirbeni family operates a grocery shop and poultry business, and relatives say the Tirbenis are traumatised and are calling on police to bring the perpetrators to justice.

Police found the keys of the businessman’s vehicle in a neighbour’s yard, as investigations into the robbery continue.

Robbed: Zabida Ali

Several residents in the Belvedere Corentyne area were mugged and relieved of personal belongings by men residing in the area.
The first incident occurred last Monday on 41-year-old Nalini Narine whose bag was snatched from her person while the woman was walking out her street. It was about 10:00 am.
Narine said that she saw two suspicious boys with bicycles coming towards her.
“When I see them coming, I move out of the way. The younger one passed and snatched my bag but I pull back and the other older one came and he wrenched it out my hand and they rode away.
“I start holler for help and this guy came with his car and we chased them for a good 10 minutes till they drop the bag and jump in the trench”. Narine stated that the muggers who were unmasked were seen in the area one day before another resident was targeted.
“These guys don’t care about anyone. They doing it in broad daylight.”
Another resident also suffered at the hands of the muggers. This time, 60-year-old Nazim Habil was choked and relieved of his bicycle while venturing to the community masjid last Thursday about 19:30 hours. The man said that he was accosted by the two men who demanded that he hand over his cash.
“One of them pull me off me bike and choke meh and holler ‘gimme all de money’ and me seh meh nah get none and them search up meh pockets and shove me down and go way with me bicycle.”
Habil stressed that although a report was made at the Police station, no progress has been made in the investigations.

Ali added that an attempt was made to follow the man but that was aborted after he quickly disappeared into the Belvedere backlands.

According to unconfirmed reports, three other residents were also attacked.

Police track cell phone, nab bandits in Berbice hotel


 

Quick action and brilliant thinking by ranks in Berbice, and by detectives attached to the Blairmont Police Station, led to the capture of two bandits who had earlier robbed a Chinese national. They made the arrests in a hotel.
According to reports, about 14:15 hrs on Sunday, businessman, Shan Goasu, 47, of Regent Street, Georgetown was on his way from Suriname to Georgetown. He reportedly joined the taxi (a black Vehicle) at Springlands with two other passengers. However in the vicinity of No2 village West Coast Berbice the driver took a detour South of the main road and drove the vehicle for about 400 feet.
The hapless man before he realized what was happening was choked into unconsciousness and relieved of his belongings including one gold chain, one gold ring, $300,000, one Iphone, a passport and S’name $2,500.
The man was then dumped out of the car without shirt. The badly bruised Goasu, subsequently regained consciousness and realized he was lying on a dam. The man began running towards the road and upon reaching the main road was rescued by a minibus driver who immediately took him to the Blairmont Police Station where a report was made.
The ranks immediately went into action and a detective decided to place a phone call to the man’s missing phone which gave them a location. The police began tracking the number and came up on the Church View International Hotel.
They quickly cordoned off the location. Getting full cooperation from the owners of the business entity. The police moved in and located the men who had minutes earlier checked in and hadn’t any time to settle. The two were nabbed and searched. During the search the police recovered $200,000, S’name $2500, one Iphone, a passport and a bag containing clothing belonging to Goasu were found.
The men were taken into custody. A search is out for the car and driver who it is believed was a part of the robbery. The missing $100,000 was reportedly taken by the driver as his part in the robbery.
The men are from Corentyne and East Coast Demerara. Efforts are being made to get some assistance from the Berbice Bridge.
Investigations are ongoing.

Man claiming he’s ISIS member threatens to bomb bank, demands $10M – deemed psych patient, charged for similar offence in 2007


 

Pandemonium erupted at a Regent Street commercial bank yesterday, after a suspected mentally ill man who claimed to been ISIS member threatened to blow up the bank while demanding $10M. He was quickly apprehended. A search revealed that he had no bomb, and this is the second time he has pulled such a stunt.
The drama began at around 09.30 hrs when the 35-year-old man, toting a shoulder bag, entered the Regent Street branch of the Guyana Bank for Trade and Industry. He then headed to the upper flat, went to a female supervisor, and said:
“I want money, or I will blow up this bank.” According to a police official, the ‘terrorist’ then handed the terrified supervisor a note which read: “ISIS: There is a bomb in this bag. Give us $10M or we will blow up this bank.”
Instead, the supervisor screamed for security, and guards who were nearby grabbed and subdued the ‘terrorist.’
Bomb experts who were summoned searched the suspect’s bag, and found a knife and a few documents.
Police are attempting to have the suspect undergo psychiatric evaluation, since his actions have led them to surmise that he may be mentally unsound.
This appears to be the case, since Kaieteur News has confirmed that the Charlotte Street resident pulled a similar stunt almost nine years ago at another commercial bank.
It is alleged that on November 8, 2007, the same man entered the Citizen’s Bank in Camp Street and gave a teller a note in which he demanded $1M, while claiming to have a gun.
Instead, the teller reportedly activated an alarm and security staffers apprehended the ‘robber.’ No gun was found on him. Reports at the time indicated that he had been recently deported from Canada. He appeared in court on November 14, and pleaded not guilty to attempting to commit a felony.
His attorney told the court that the accused is a vendor and had a problem of “mental delusion” and that he is frequently examined by a doctor. He reportedly did not take his medication on the day of the alleged robbery attempt. His counsel also said that the offence was a bailable one and there was no allegation of any weapon being used.
The accused was granted bail in the sum of $150,000.

"Pandemonium erupted at a Regent Street commercial bank yesterday, after a suspected mentally ill man who claimed to been ISIS member threatened to blow up the bank while demanding $10M.

Armed bandits beat, rob Corentyne businesswoman

Two armed bandits on Monday evening beat and robbed a Corentyne businesswoman, taking hundreds of thousands in cash and valuables.
The incident occurred about 18:35h.
Reports are that two masked men – one armed with a cutlass and the other with a gun –pounced on businesswoman Savitry Jagnandand, 44, at Number 72 Village, Corentyne, and demanded cash. This publication was told that at the time of the incident, Jagnandand was in a hammock with her son.
The men, after entering the yard, immediately started demanding valuables. The intruders beat and bound the woman’s son, before locking him in a storeroom in the lower flat of the two-storey house. Guyana Times was told that the men then took the businesswoman into the upper flat where they further demanded cash and jewellery.
This publication was told that she handed over an undisclosed quantity of jewellery along with $775,000 in cash and an electronic tablet. The bandits also took a Samsung Galaxy cellular phone and a quantity of phone cards before escaping.
Up to press time, no arrest was made; however, B Division Commander, Assistant Commissioner Ian Amsterdam said that Police were looking for two men who previously committed robberies on the Number 63 Beach in April. According to him, since then Police have stepped up their surveillance and conducted several searches in the area.
“They went quiet for a while, but we are suspecting that they would have committed these two robberies, but we are not getting a description as to how they look,” he told this publication.
In April, a vehicle operator was robbed of valuables which included cellular phones, cash, and jewellery while driving along a lonely spot on the Number 63 Beach. During that same period, a couple relaxing on the beach also suffered a similar fate. On both occasions, the perpetrators were a man carrying a shotgun and another one carrying a cutlass.

BL Beer Garden

During the wee hours of Sunday, three men broke down the backdoor of popular drinking spot, BL Beer Garden at Lot 9 Public Road, Albouystown, and robbed businessman Giriraj Bridgelall aka Rocky, savagely beating him in the process.
The entire robbery was captured on camera. The video clearly shows the face of at least two of the bandits. A third partially concealed his face with a piece of cloth.
Footage captured by an outdoor surveillance camera shows the three men approaching the back of the building around 2am, checking a window and upon noticing the camera, removing it. Kaieteur News had an opportunity to view the security footage that was captured by internal cameras. They show a sleeping Bridgelall and his wife in the shop. Upon hearing the noise of the door being breached, Bridgelall rushed out of bed only to be thrown into a corner by one of the men.
While Bridgelall was being assaulted, one of the bandits stuck a gun to his wife’s head and relieved her of her wedding and engagement rings. The men continued beating Bridgelall, stomping him to the brink of unconsciousness.
The video shows one of the men about to strike Bridgelall in the back with a heavy wooden stool but his accomplice stopped him. Bridgelall’s father posited that had the bandit hit Bridgelall, his son would have sustained a broken back at the very least.
After the savage beating, the men gagged and bound Bridgelall and proceeded to search the premises for valuables.
The bandits carted off $497,000 in cash and a number of miscellaneous articles. They subsequently made good their escape with their loot.
Shortly after the ordeal, Bridgelall recovered enough to go to the Ruimveldt Police Station and lodged a report. The police reportedly went to the location and reviewed the surveillance footage. According to reports the police have identified at least one of the perpetrators as “Pragso”.
Some close friends of Bridgelall have also identified another of the robbers by his alias “Turrell”. The men are reportedly well known criminals.

Gunmen storm, robbed Enmore supermarket

Gunmen stormed an East Coast Demerara Chinese Supermarket on Friday evening carting off an undisclosed amount of money and mobile handsets from customers.

Guyana Times understands that the men, one armed with a handgun, entered the supermarket located at Blossom Scheme, Enmore at about 20:00h.

As they entered, the perpetrators brandished their firearms demanding cash and valuables. The employees reportedly complied since they were fearful for their lives.

The gunmen then relieved the customers of their mobile phones and turned their attention to the cashier, who handed over an undisclosed sum of cash to the men who then escaped on foot. No one was hurt.

The Police were summoned but despite several patrols in the area, no arrests were made. Investigations are continuing.

This robbery comes mere hours after Lukpaul Sukhai, 37, of Foulis Housing Scheme, East Coast Demerara, was shot to the shoulder, when three armed bandits pounced on him and his employer upon their return from a city bank on Friday.

It was reported that Sukhai and his employer went to a city bank earlier in the day and withdrew a sum of money.

As they arrived home, a white 212 Toyota car drove up in front of the house and two men, one armed with handgun, exited and discharged a round at Sukhai, hitting him in his right shoulder.

After being shot, and with his employer still in the car, the injured man drove away from the scene. The bandits turned their attention to the businessman’s wife and relieved her of a bag containing $20,000 and a few pieces of women’s clothing. They then made good their escape.(Bhisham Mohamed)

N/A home of Grenada High Court judge burglarised

 

THE Lot 55 Stanleytown, New Amsterdam, Berbice home of Grenada’s High Court Judge Paula Gilford, a Guyanese by birth, was burglarised during the early hours of Friday morning.Caretaker Prince Gordon has said the burglary was detected just after 06:00hrs, when he returned there and observed that a window on the northern side had been broken, allowing the perpetrator(s) access into the building. On checking inside, he said, he discovered that three antique wall mirrors and a quantity of carpentry tools were missing.

After crime sleuths had been summoned to the scene, Gordon made checks in the surrounding areas and discovered the mirrors concealed in a nearby clump of bushes, covered with tarpaulin. He is of the opinion that the thief/thieves may have experienced difficulty lifting the weighty booty, and had stashed same nearby before going in search of buyers.
No one has been arrested, but the window has since been secured.

Guyanese-born Justice Paula Gilford was admitted to the local bar in October 1998. She served as State Counsel in the Chambers of the Director of Public Prosecutions before holding the following positions: Legal Counsel in the Office of National Drug and Money Laundering Control Policy in Antigua & Barbuda; Principal Crown Counsel, Attorney General’s Chambers in Montserrat; Registrar, CARICOM Competition Commission in Suriname.

Ex-cop held after allegedly shooting at police patrol


 

An ex-cop, now on the wrong side of the law, has been detained after allegedly opening fire on a police patrol.

That incident reportedly occurred Saturday night in the vicinity of Cemetery Road.

According to reports, a police mobile patrol was in the area checking on an abandoned car, when the rank, who was in a white and heavily-tinted vehicle, shot at the ranks before driving away.

One of the ranks recognized him. The former policeman was subsequently taken into custody after turning up at an East Bank Demerara station with at attorney.

A senior police official told Kaieteur News that the rank was interdicted and charged some time ago for armed robbery.

The now 28-year-old was charged in 2012, along with another rank, for allegedly attempting to collect money from the victim of a robbery in exchange for recovering some of the items.

Freed after 13 years in prison… Ex-con stabbed to death by lover


 

By Romila Boodram

Dead: Frederick Peters

Dead: Frederick Peters

Life on the outside turned out to be more dangerous than on the inside for ex-con Frederick Peters.

Peters, 42, was stabbed to death at around 22.30 hrs by his lover on Saturday, just two months after serving a 13-year sentence for armed robbery and escaping from custody.

The killing happened at the woman’s Lot 90 Block 34 Recht-Door-Zee La Parfaite Harmonie, West Bank Demerara home.

The father of two was stabbed to the neck and was pronounced dead at the West Demerara Regional Hospital.

His 47-year-old lover, who claimed that she stabbed him in self defence, sustained a minor wound to one hand and another to one of her feet.

After killing Peters, the woman immediately went to La Grange Police Station where she gave her version of what transpired. She was taken to the hospital where her injuries were tended to and was later taken into custody.

The knife was recovered.

Police have reportedly received three versions of what transpired on that night which resulted in the death of Peters.

One report is that on Saturday, her partner received photographs on his cellular phone of persons that could be potential robbery victims.

These pictures were reportedly sent to him by his associates in prison.

According to this report, the girlfriend confronted Peters about the photos and messages.

This allegedly led to an argument during which Peters stabbed the woman to her hand and leg.

However, she allegedly managed to overpower him and stab him with the same knife. She then made her way to La Grange Police Station.

But the slain ex-con’s relatives are claiming that the killing stemmed from jealousy on the woman’s part.

They said that from the position in which Peters was found, he was stabbed in his sleep.

The man was found lying on his back on a bed.

His relatives even suggested that the suspect, who was deported to Guyana from the United States of America nine years ago, might have inflicted her own injuries.

“My cousin is big (in size); if he wanted to stab her, it wouldn’t have been two small wounds. She would have been dead, but she had to stab him in his sleep because if he was awake, she could have never overpowered him,” Peters’ cousin, Alicia Edwards said.

Edwards told this newspaper that around 21:00 hrs on Saturday, the suspect called and told her that Peters had a woman calling and cursing her on the phone.

“I tell her don’t worry with that and tomorrow (Sunday) I gun come and we gun talk and I turned and tell her that she done got the man and she shouldn’t bother with who calling. She (suspect) turn and tell me that she done with he (victim) and he got to go his way.”

The woman added that she promised to return a call to the suspect since she was on the road at the time but forgot to do so.

“Around 04:00 (hrs on Sunday), I hear a knock on my door and when I opened it was my aunt and she told me that my cousin was murdered,” the woman recounted.

She said when she saw her cousin’s body in the mortuary; he had no bloodstains on his fingers.

“If he had stabbed her, there would have been blood around his hand or somewhere, but blood is only around his neck.”

The third version came in a police release, which stated that Peters and a woman were involved in an argument at his home, as they accused each other of being unfaithful.

A scuffle then ensued between them, during which the woman was stabbed to her left arm and right leg, and Peters to his left side neck.

Peters collapsed from his stab wound. The woman then summoned the police, who on arriving took Peters to the West Demerara Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

According to information received, the suspect and Peters met eight years ago while he was in prison during “some racket” and they stayed in contact.

When he was released from prison on May 03, last, the woman went to the Camp Street jail and picked him up and took him to her Parfaite Harmonie home. She also moved his son, Akeem Massiah, into her home.

A distraught Akeem Massiah said that he last saw his father alive on Friday but did not see him on the day he was slain since the teen got up late that morning and his father had already left home.

The teen said that he woke up shortly after 11:00 hrs on Saturday, and he and the suspect left for Georgetown. His father had given her money to buy a dustpan and a basket.

“I left her at Demico and I went in Sophia to see my mother. I was supposed to meet her back right at Demico, but I was waiting on my father to call me. After I didn’t get no call, I called my father phone but it was off and then I called her phone and it ring out,” Massiah recalled.

Fighting back tears, the young man said that he called his father again around 22:00 hrs on Saturday and when he did not get an answer, he decided to return to Parfait Harmonie.

“I had a feeling something was wrong so I went there. I reached around midnight and I see a set of police and when I asked what happened, the police said my step mother stabbed my father and he died,” Massiah recounted.

He described the suspect as a jealous and violent person who attacked his father on numerous occasions.

“If anyone call my father, she does run him to throw hot water on him and she even stabbed him in his hand already but my father don’t do her anything because he said he went to jail already and he knows what it’s like and now he come out for his children,” the young man said.

In tears, he added, “My father left me since I was seven and my sister was three years and now that he is here, we only get to spend two months with him and she killed him.”

A tenant who resides in the same building with the suspect said that the woman moved there late last year with another man.

However, a few months before the ex-convict was released from prison, the first man moved out and Peters and his son moved in.

When this newspaper visited the scene yesterday, neighbours were not surprised at all. They claimed that the couple fought and cursed each other daily.

In 2007, Peters escaped from the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts lockups, just before he could be transported back to prison.

At the time, he was on remand on ten counts of robbery under arms, one count of threatening a police officer, abduction and having a dangerous weapon. The crimes were committed in 2006.

Peters robbed ten persons, carting off over $1,088,000 in jewellery, a cellular phone, cash and other items. He also reportedly threatened city policeman Quincy Trotman, had a ‘Rambo’ knife with no reasonable excuse and abducted Adilah Sabree.

gunmen at his Number 63 Village, Corentyne home in broad daylight.
Nandan told Guyana Times that at 11:00h, he had just exited the washroom area of his house when he was confronted by the two men, one of whom was armed with a gun.
Nandan, who returned to Guyana one week ago, explained that he had been in the process of fixing his car and had decided to visit the washroom minutes before he was confronted by the men who demanded money and jewellery.
“So I walked and went into the house – who closes their door at 11 o’clock in the day? And as I came out, there were these two fellows; one had a long gun… I told them that I don’t have money. Then I asked them if they ever see me with gold. Then the tall one tell the short one to tie me up. They still asking for the money and I told them that all I have was G$10,000 and showed them where it was,” the man told this publication.
Nandan said he was pushed onto the bed and asked for his firearm, “I had tell them that I don’t have a firearm, that they must know that, then the one with the gun tell me not to look at him and I told him that if he is right in front of me where else does he want me to look…”
The men, who gun-butted Nandan, ransacked the house before taking Nandan’s cellular phone and a wristwatch he was wearing at the time, along with the $10,000 before fleeing in a waiting motor car which was parked nearby.
Nandan believes that the men may have been monitoring the area for some time since he recalled on Friday while talking with one of his neighbours, he noticed the same car in the community.
“It was parked till over so in front of that big house and I wanted to see the number plate of the car and we were waiting for a long time, but my neighbour said it might just be a male and female who want some private time… But people don’t come in here like that,” he explained.
B (Berbice) Division Commander, Assistant Commissioner Ian Amsterdam said the robbers operated in a similar manner to those who committed a robbery on a Corentyne businesswoman last week.
On Monday evening, two masked and armed men – one armed with a gun and the other with a cutlass – went into the home of Savitry Jagnandand, 44, of Number 72 Village, Corentyne.
The men took hundreds of thousands in cash and valuables.
However, it was unclear if the same men are responsible for this robbery.

After committing the act, the suspect attempted to escape, but was pursued by eyewitnesses and led straight to the Brickdam Police Station, where he turned himself in.

The dead man has been identified as Steve Dexter Arthur of Pouderoyen, West Bank Demerara. When the Guyana Chronicle arrived at the scene, Arthur was lying motionless in a pool of blood in front of the building that once housed the Guyana National Cooperative Bank (GNCB).

Dem had a lil fight, and by de time I turn meh back I hear a holla,” the vendor said while packing his produce into his bus.

The businessman, who has been selling in the area for the past three years, said it was only when he turned around that he saw the man bleeding profusely on the ground. However, he said while the two men are well known handymen around the Stabroek Market Square, they were not working for him at the time of the incident.

C/tyne man critical after stabbing incident

 

PORK-KNOCKER Randy Phillips, aka “Salt head”, of Kildonan village, Central Corentyne East Berbice, is currently battling for his life at the New Amsterdam Hospital after being stabbed several times to his body by a suspect known only as “Rat”.The incident, which occurred at a shop in a back street of the neighbouring village of Nurney at about 13:00hrs on Sunday, stemmed from a taunting incident that turned violent.

The 29-year-old injured man’s sister, Rovell Leitch, told this publication that Phillips was with some friends when “Rat” began taunting him about his girlfriend.

“My brother and some friends were at a shop hanging out, and then the guy (Rat) started to interfere with him about his girlfriend, and Randy answer he and they start scuffle. I hold on to the guy and ask he why he hurting my brother, and he say is not me and him; leh he (Randy) dead; leh he S@*$T dead!” Leitch said.

The woman said she took away a cutlass which Rat had in his possession, but he took out a knife and stabbed her brother once to the abdomen, once to the shoulder and once to the head in the region of the temple.

“Rat had a cutlass when they start scrambling. I pull away the cutlass from Rat; he then tek a piece wood and lash (Phillips) on he head (before) he pulled out a knife and stab he; and (Phillips) drop down. I pick he up and rush he away to the hospital,” the sister related.

The suspect reportedly fled to the backdam after the altercation, and is currently in hiding.

Theresa Phillips, mother of Randy Phillips, said her only son came out of the interior a mere week ago, and she is calling on the authorities to find the suspect, who reportedly went into hiding after fleeing the scene.

“Randy is my only son, and (he) does take care of me. I want the police to find ‘Rat’ and make sure I get justice, because my son doesn’t deserve this,” she tearfully declared.

She said Randy was initially taken to the Port Mourant Hospital, but was transferred to the New Amsterdam Hospital, where his condition is listed as critical. He is unresponsive to treatment, and is on life support in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Theresa Phillips said “Rat” is from Nurney village, and she is unaware of what could have triggered his rage against her son, since they would hang out from time to time.

Police have launched a manhunt for “Rat” as they continue their investigations.

Alpha Hotel bust… Cops recover 5 kilos of coke, seize car


 

– handgun used by victim licensed to Bartica business

Four persons, among them three hotel employees, remained in custody yesterday following Thursday’s drug bust at the Alpha Hotel at Ogle, East Coast Demerara, in which one man was slain.
Nigel Joseph, 52, of North Ruimveldt, Georgetown, was shot dead during a confrontation with ranks from the Police Narcotics Branch.
Police said that they recovered 5.5 kilograms of cocaine and a Smith and Wesson 9mm firearm.
Kaieteur News understands that the weapon was licensed to a business establishment at First Avenue, Bartica. Sources said that the alleged shooter also had a permit to carry a firearm.
Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum said that the Police Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) is investigating the shooting.
A police release issued yesterday stated that about 16.40hrs on Thursday, the police, acting on information that a large scale drug transaction was being conducted at a hotel at Ogle, ECD, went to the hotel to investigate and as they were approaching the suspects with a view to arresting them, they came under fire.
“The police then returned fire during which suspect, Nigel Joseph, 52, of North Ruimveldt, Georgetown, was fatally shot.
According to reports, when ranks of the Police Narcotics Branch arrived, they saw Nigel Joseph, running in a southerly direction in the hotel parking lot.
It is alleged that Joseph ignored orders to halt, and instead discharged three rounds at the ranks.
The police returned fire, shooting Joseph, who later succumbed. In addition to the cocaine and the pistol, 14 rounds of ammunition and a car were impounded.
Those detained include a 46-year-old driver from Alexander Village; a 16-year-old boy who is employed as a hotel cleaner, a 56-year-old cook and a 30-year-old South Ruimveldt resident.

A man who on Thursday afternoon, reportedly without permission removed a Mercedes Benz car, PMM 8606, from the parking lot of a private company on the East Coast Demerara, and later crashed at Abary, was up to press time in police custody assisting with investigations.
According to information received, the car was removed from the parking lot of H. Nauth and Sons, an engineering company on East Coast Demerara.
Employees, who were at the scene when this publication visited, were all reluctant to divulge information. All they were willing to say was that the company received information around 14:15 hours that the car had crashed at Little Abary, which is just about three kilometers west of the Abary Bridge.
Travelling in an easterly direction with the police in pursuit, rather than negotiating the turn , the vehicle ploughed into a narrow roadside drain before turning turtle on the other side of the drain.
The driver, who is said to have escaped serious injuries, was quickly taken into custody and removed from the scene.
A senior officer from the police division conformed that he had received report of the incident, but at the point in time he was not in a position to furnish further details, since he was at the time, at Headquarters attending to other job related matters.
Equipment from the company arrived shortly after to retrieve the badly damaged Mercedes Benz.
