La Penitence woman beaten, stabbed to death; four in custody

Dead: Carol Davidson

A 21-year-old security guard was today beaten and stabbed to death by three females and one male at East Ruimveldt Squatting Area, in the vicinity of Brickdam Secondary School Bridge.

Dead is Carol Davidson of East La Penitence Squatting Area. The incident occurred at about 10:25h.

The Guyana Police Force (GPF) revealed that Davidson had a grievance with one of the suspects, which led to a flight on Sunday.

However, at about 10:00h today, Davidson was “drinking” alcohol with a group of friends in a yard in the vicinity of Brickdam Secondary School Bridge, when she was attacked by the suspects with several pieces of wood.

A scuffle ensued during which the 21-year-old woman was dealt several lashes about her body by the suspects. She managed to run a short distance but was pursued by the three women and one male.

Subsequently, the suspects, one of whom was later seen with a knife in her right hand, left the yard. Davidson, who had a suspected stab wound in her chest area, was subsequently found lying face down on the ground.

She was picked up in an unconscious state and immediately taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
