Dead: Orlando Samaroo

Orlando Samaroo, a 19-year-old resident of Belle West, West Bank Demerara, died on Friday, one day after he was stabbed multiple times about his body by a man who had accused him of robbery.
According to reports, the stabbing incident occurred on Thursday afternoon at Belle West (Phase #2), and the teenager was attacked by a 31-year-old miner of Belle West Housing Scheme.
It is alleged that Samaroo had allegedly beaten and robbed the suspect several weeks ago, and he and the suspect had had several misunderstandings thereafter. On Thursday, at about 14:00h, Samaroo was reportedly in the company of several men, sitting under a bus shed in Belle West when the suspect, armed with a knife, approached him. The suspect immediately held on to Samaroo’s jersey and stabbed him several times in his abdomen, before fleeing the scene on foot.
Samaroo was rushed to the West Demerara Regional Hospital, and was admitted a patient. He was subsequently transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries at 10:00h on Friday. His body is at the GPHC’s Mortuary awaiting a post-mortem examination.
Police have said that several persons in the area have been questioned, and useful information has been obtained. Police are looking for the suspect as investigations continue. (G9)
