Wanted bulletin issued for Maverick DeAbreu

Benjai’s assault

The Guyana Police Force on Monday issued a wanted bulletin for Maverick DeAbreu for questioning in relation to an attack on Trinidadian Soca sensation Rodney LeBlanc, also called Benjai, and Tiffany and Jamele Hubbard, which occurred outside a popular Main Street night spot on April 16, 2017.
DeAbreu is also accused of discharging a loaded firearm at Ruimveldt, Georgetown.
The 27-year-old man is accused of hitting LeBlanc to the face with a glass bottle, causing him to suffer severe injuries during an argument moments after the Soca artiste wrapped up a concert.
While information remains sketchy about the circumstances surrounding the incident, Guyana Times understands there was indeed a heated argument between the Soca artiste, who was allegedly heavily intoxicated, and a taxi driver. It was reported that three of the six ladies who were with Benjai were leaning on the taxi driver’s car and although he asked them to desist from doing so, they continued.
It was at this time, the artiste reportedly started to hit the back of the car with the bottle he had in his hand. Reports are the driver came out of his car and Benjai reportedly advanced towards him. However, after seeing the commotion outside, DeAbreu allegedly rushed out and dealt the singer one blow to his face with a bottle.
It was reported that earlier in the night, Benjai had misbehaved with DeAbreu’s girlfriend. Meanwhile, the Police are asking anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of DeAbreu to contact them on telephone numbers 225-6411, 226-1389, or 911, or at the nearest police station.
All information will be treated with the strictest confidence.
