Home News Duo injured during brawl at Den Amstel
Fifty-eight-year-old Royston Walcott, a butcher of Den Amstel, West Coast Demerara (WCD), and another man are nursing injuries following a brawl during an argument on Sunday.
The incident reportedly took place at about 13:30h at Back Street, Den Amstel, WCD.
Based on information received, Walcott and the suspect had an argument earlier in the day during which Walcott armed himself with a piece of wood and dealt one blow to his head. In addition, the now injured man cuffed the suspect to his face.
In retaliation, the suspect, who was armed with a cutlass, dealt Walcott a chop to his left thumb and another to his left wrist. Dripping blood, Walcott went to the Den Amstel Police Station where he made a report thus resulting in the arrest of the suspect.
Both men were taken to the Leonora Cottage Hospital where they were treated. Walcott was transferred to the West Demerara Regional Hospital (WDRH) where he was further treated but subsequently took self-discharge.
He was, nevertheless, arrested while the injured suspect remained a patient at the Leonora Cottage Hospital where his condition is being monitored.
An investigation into the brawl is underway.
