An unidentified man of Amerindian descent was on Saturday stabbed to death at Lusignan Prison Road, East Coast Demerara (ECD).
The Guyana Police Force’s (GPF) Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) reported that the incident occurred at about 23:40h.
A resident of Lusignan Prison Road told investigators that he was at home watching television when he heard a loud noise from outside his home.
After that, he ventured outside, where he made checks and later observed a male lying motionless on the road.
The body was clad in yellow three-quarter pants and a jersey with what appeared to be stab wounds to his left side neck.
The resident said he immediately made contact with the Police, and at about 00:20h, an Emergency Medical Team arrived on the scene and pronounced the man dead.
“The area was canvassed for CCTV, and cameras were seen in close proximity, which investigators haven't viewed as yet,” the CCU noted.
The body is at the mortuary awaiting identification and a Post Mortem Examination (PME).
