Pensioner cut to death by cop
Kaieteur News – Pensioner Patrick George, who was cut about three times for his body last Sunday afternoon, was found dead in his yard yesterday morning. The 73-year-old man is said to live in Onderneeming, Essequibo Coast.
According to reports, the man was cut off by a police sergeant, who allegedly acted in self-defense. Kaieteur News understands that the policeman at the time was doing some improvement work in his Onderneeming yard, when he was allegedly assaulted by the pensioner.
This publication understands that the men are neighbors and a zinc fence shares their properties. The sergeant told police that George removed a zinc sheet from the fence and approached him with a broken heart and a piece of metal.
The sergeant, who at the time was also heartbroken, took revenge by cutting the pensioner. The elderly man allegedly dropped his broken heart and the piece of metal and escaped through the said zinc fence.
Yesterday, at about 10:00, police went to the pensioner’s home, found him lying on his stairs dumb, with cut wounds to his forehead, wrist and chest.
George’s body was taken to Suddie Public Hospital and pronounced dead on arrival by a doctor. The body has since been taken to the Charity Mortuary. On the other hand, a police sergeant is closely arrested, as a probe in the matter continues.
