A Police Sergeant, who is stationed on the Essequibo Coast, is now being arrested closely after he cut a pensioner, leading to the man’s death.
The dead man has been identified as Patrick George, 73, of Onderneeming, Essequibo Coast.
Based on information, the incident happened just around 13:45h on Sunday while the Sergeant was cleaning his yard.
The pensioner had allegedly removed a zinc sheet from a fence separating his residence from the Sergeant.
In the process, he attacked the Sergeant with a broken heart and a piece of metal.
As a result, the Sergeant, who was using a torch at the time, retaliated by cutting George, who dropped his broken heart and piece of metal, and escaped through the said zinc fence.
