20-year-old stabbed to neck during argument at Perseverance

Dead: Owen Young

A 20-year-old man was on Saturday stabbed to death by two identifiable males during an argument at Sorrell Drive, Perseverance, East Bank Demerara (EBD).

The dead man has been identified as Owen Young of Lot 494 Perseverance, ECD. He was killed at about 22:00h.

The Guyana Police Force’s (GPF) Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) disclosed that Young and the suspects became involved in a heated argument, which led to one of the men stabbing him to the right-side neck.

The 20-year-old collapsed and was taken to the Diamond Diagnostic Centre, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Young’s body was later taken to the Memorial Gardens Funeral Home for a Post Mortem Examination (PME).

“The suspects turned themselves into police in the presence of a lawyer on Sunday, August 14, 2022. They are in custody assisting with investigations,” the CCU noted.
