Man who alleged police brutality was wanted since 2007
Uhan Duesbury, the security guard attached to Steve’s Jewellery, was wanted by the police ever since 2007 when he was summonsed by his former spouse who was seeking child support money for her son.
The woman, Alexi Stoll, yesterday told this newspaper that the two parted ways since 1998 and Duesbury had owed in excess of $624,000 and was consistently evading the police.
According to Stoll, she recently saw him at his place of work and immediately informed the Police who went in plainclothes and arrested him.
She noted that the reason for the plainclothes is that he knew that he was on the run and would have escaped before the police would have had a chance to arrest him.
Stoll added that she was told that he did attempt to escape when the ranks identified themselves but they managed to secure him.
The woman is also baffled as to why he would have been released adding that she was told that he would have been locked up.
Stoll told this newspaper that she was even told to show up at court given that he would go through due process but according to her, the relevant documents were not handed over to the East la Penitence Police Station, given that that was the station with the appropriate jurisdiction.
Duesbury, on Tuesday evening, complained to this newspaper against what he said was a sound thrashing by two plainclothes ranks of the Guyana Police Force.
According to Duesbury, his ordeal began while he was still at his workplace when two men came and identified themselves as police ranks telling him that there was a warrant for his arrest.
He told this newspaper that the men did have the requisite identification but had no warrant and told him that he was wanted in connection with affiliation (child support).
He said that one of the ranks told him, “I hear you like fight but you ain’t going nowhere today cause we gun beat you.”
Duesbury said that one of the ranks grabbed him and secured the handcuff on his right hand. It was extremely tight to the point that it caused his skin to break, he said. The lacerations were visible on the man’s hand when Kaieteur News spoke with him last evening.
He said that he was reluctant to have the other hand cuffed but he was forced and that too was extremely tight.
According to Duesbury he was made to walk to the Brickdam Police Station with the ranks battering him along the way.
But he disappeared from the station despite the warrant and the woman is at a loss. She said that this should not have happened.
