old climbs onto roof lamenting injustice
By Kurt Campbell
Following close to one of cries of injustices by the teen and attempts to jump from the three storey building he was finally apprehended by an undercover Police Officer, handcuffed (both hand and feet) and taken away in the back of a police van.
Prior to his apprehension, police and firefighters seemed ill equipped to deal with the situation. However, from among the hundreds of persons who gathered to see the unfolding event, several public spirited citizens pleaded with the youth to come down and seek help, while others shouted loudly encouraging him to jump.
The boy could be heard saying, “I am not lying why I would be lying… I am not a criminal why they want me, they damaged me.”
The Public Relations Office of the Guyana Police Force confirmed that they received the report on Tuesday, January 28. The three police officers are currently under close arrest, following reports.
Meanwhile, According to Chief Probation and Social Services Officer Forbes Monroe, the teen was recently released from the New Opportunity Corps. He could not say why he was detained there in the first place.
He did confirm however that the matter will be investigated thoroughly and the teen will be taken to seek medical attention.
