Labourer nursing chop wound to head after cutlass attack

  • by

Ronald Deen, a 50-year-old labourer of Water Street, Bagotstown, EBD, is currently hospitalized in the Georgetown Public Hospital following an attack by a cutlass-wielding security guard at the premises of a fishery in Eccles Industrial Site, East Bank Demerara (EBD).
Reports are that the attack occurred at about 17:40h on Friday, and the 56-year-old security guard implicated is a resident of Second Street, Herstelling, EBD.
Police report that Deen and several others were drinking at the fishery when the security guard approached and asked them to leave, as he needed to secure the building. Deen allegedly grabbed the guard’s leg, and refused to let go, despite being asked.
The escalating situation led to a heated exchange, and the guard drew a cutlass from his waistband and chopped Deen on the left side of his forehead.
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) who arrived at the scene transported Deen to Georgetown Public Hospital, where he is in critical condition. The suspect has meanwhile been arrested, and the weapon has been confiscated, the police have said. (G9)
