A Guyanese man was on Wednesday arrested and charged with second-degree murder of Alejandro Melendez, who police say was hit three times in the parking lot of 760 State St, Schenectady, New York, on Christmas morning.

The man Ishwarnand Goberdhan 35 of Schenec-tady and formerly of Tain, Corentyne, Berbice, was remanded to prison.

According to the Daily Gazette, Melendez was intentionally struck and killed by Goberdhan.

Melendez’ body was discovered just after 8 a.m. that day in the parking lot at 760 State St. Someone reported to 911 dispatchers that a man was down there and responding officers and firefighters found Melendez’ body lying in the parking lot.

An autopsy found Melendez died from blunt force trauma as a result of being struck by a vehicle and his death was ruled a homicide, the news report stated.

Arrest paperwork for Goberdhan did not give the time of the murder, but investigators previously asked for witnesses who may have been in the area between 3 and 4 a.m. that morning.

Investigators zeroed in on Goberdhan soon after the incident and determined he fled the area the day after the attack.

He returned to Schenec-tady on Wednesday and investigators found him at 1044 Strong St and took him into custody without incident, police said.

Charges against Goberdhan are based on witness statements, video surveillance and positive identifications of both Goberdhan and his vehicle, police paperwork stated.

If convicted of the murder charge, Goberdhan would face up to 25 years to life in state prison, the Daily Gazette reported.

We have to admit that not all Guyanese will be good citizens in America. But this country got all the help that one can imagine. People have choices to redeem themselves from problems. If you can't count one to ten before committing a crime, you will have 25 years to think about what you did wrong. 

Prince don’t you think Guyanese have a problem here ..

Guyana's murder rate is four times higher than that of the U.S. As of August 2018, local media reports indicated a 7% decrease in overall serious crimes, but a 23% increase in robberies without a weapon.May 7, 2019

Dave, I didn't create anyone's problem. I can't solve everyone's problems either. But I can offer solutions to cope or help with people's problems. All my life I have been doing research and assisting people in many areas to get the help they needed. I do that as a charity to my fellow Guyanese. So, it's not what one thinks but what you can offer.

No wonder some of them resort to criminal behavior. After you are done with them, they are more confused than when they start to listen to you.

If you hear a crime was committed using a cutlass, then it's a Guyanese for sure.

Why Indos don't use cutlass on their rivals in Guyana? 

My hair is grey, but not with years,
Nor grew it white
In a single night,
As men's have grown from sudden fears:
My limbs are bow'd, though not with toil,
But rusted with a vile repose,
For they have been a dungeon's spoil,
And mine has been the fate of those
To whom the goodly earth and air
Are bann'd, and barr'd—forbidden fare

You haven't been around some cane suttah coolies. I have seen with my own eyes what coolies did to blacks with a wooden pailin. Imagine what would have happened if they had cutlasses. Coolies don't walk with a cutlass to pick a fight. If there is a fight and he has one, he will use it.
