He was taken into custody after being spotted in Parika, East Bank Essequibo (EBE).Singh, who is a 22-year-old fisherman, was knifed to death in front of his home, owing to an old grievance between himself and the suspect.Reports are that at about 20:00h on Sunday, Noel was returning home from a bar where he and his friends had been consuming alcoholic beverages. He was in front of his yard when the suspect confronted him.The argument is said to have been a continuation of a verbal row the duo had some six days prior to the stabbing incident.However, the row escalated and the suspect reportedly whipped out a knife from the waist of his pants and stabbed the victim twice to the left side of his chest and once to his back. He then cut the fisherman along his left wrist.Singh then collapsed and fell into the drain in front of his yard. He managed to climb out, covered in mud, and was picked up by one of his friends, who had been on the street en route to a shop in close proximity of Noel’s home. Meanwhile, the suspect fled the scene and made good his escape.The now dead man’s brother and parents were alerted and a bleeding Noel was rushed to the Leonora Cottage Hospital, ECD, but was already dead when he arrived there.Noel’s friend, who found the bleeding fisherman on the street on Sunday night, Reyaad Mohammed, told Guyana Times that he had just returned home from work and was heading towards the shop to purchase an item when he noticed the suspect approaching him from the opposite direction.“All I see is this boy running coming towards me and I try to run back home because he had tried to attack me a lot of times already so when he passed then I came out back and saw my friend on the road laying there, panting for breath. I helped to take him to the hospital with a taxi. The person who stabbed my friend had beat up and cuff up my friend a few days ago before he stabbed him Sunday,” Mohammed said.last_img read more
