– mechanic chopped during argument at Bartica

As a result of trying to make peace between his brother and another man who were arguing during a drinking spree at Orange Walk in Matthews Ridge, North West District (NWD), a man is now hospitalised after he was attacked and chopped.
Twenty-four-year-old Gavin Daniels of Airstrip Matthews Ridge, NWD, was reportedly chopped to his left jaw and left hand by his brother, who later fled the scene.
Based on reports received, the suspect and an identifiable male were consuming alcohol at a shop in Orange Walk when an argument broke out between them. As a result, Daniels intervened with the aim of making peace but instead, his brother chopped him.
The injured man was taken to the Pakera District Hospital by relatives where he was treated and admitted a patient in a stable condition. The Police are on the hunt for the suspect as investigations continue.
Meanwhile, in another incident, 44-year-old Andrew Hodge, a mechanic of Byderabo Road, Bartica, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni), was attacked and chopped during an argument at Kalcoon Village, Mazaruni River.
Police stated that Hodge and the suspect were socialising when tempers flared, which led to the suspect arming himself with a machete and dealing the victim several chops to both his hands.
As a result, one of Hodge’s fingers was completely severed.
Hodge was taken to the Bartica Regional Hospital where he was treated and remains a patient in a stable condition. The Police are in pursuit of the perpetrator, who fled the scene.
