Police investigate allegations against Neighbourhood Police
Police are investigating allegations of sexual assault by a member of the Neighbourhood Policing
Group, stationed at Lenora Police Station.
The victim identified as Shellyza Ally, of Anna Catherina, West Coast Demerara, visited the Ministry of Human Services yesterday and was told to visit Eve Leary Police Station where she was told that she will be contacted since police are investigating.
The man had claimed to be working with the Anna Catherina Policing Group, however, sources from that group said that the man who is well known for sexual assaults against women is attached to the Leonora Police Station, and is a member of the Neighbourhood police.
The perpetrator was identified as Raymond Hack. He has not been arrested as yet.
“This man does get away with things like this a lot; the police assist him. There needs to be a proper investigation,”
According to reports, the man confronted Mrs Ally on Friday about family-related issues. He then attacked the woman while she was driving out her street. He reportedly dealt her several blows to the face and ripped off her head scarf (kemar) before tearing off her top and bra.
Shellyza Ally explained that on Friday her husband’s aunt visited her residence. Later that day, her aunt’s stepson called her landline phone and began to use abusive and explicit words toward her. She later cut off the phone.
“The phone ring about four times again and I didn’t pick it up because I saw on the caller’s ID that it was the same person calling. He left a message on the phone saying, ‘Shelly you are a whore just like your aunt,” Ms Ally lamented.
She then left to visit the Leonora Police Station. Ally said that on her way, as she was driving through the street in her vehicle she was confronted by the same caller who is well known in the Anna Catherina Policing group.
“While driving to the police station there was my aunt stepson on a bicycle coming towards me. When he ride in front of my car I had to stop.”
Mrs Ally explained that the man then walked toward her vehicle and started slapping her in the face several times, then ripped off her kemar, top and bra in the process.
“I was yelling ‘help’, and no one was coming forward to help me, and he was saying that he would kill me. But a junkie hold him back then I escaped through the front passenger seat. Only then people started to assist me and carry me in a yard where I got another top to wear.”
Adding that she called her husband after the ordeal, Mrs Ally said they then visited the Leonora Police Station where she was insulted by a female police rank and told to leave the police station because she was crying.
“She told me I can’t cry in the place and I have to get outside. She told me I can’t sit inside the police station and that I have to go outside. I saw the man who is with the policing group and who beat me up in the station and the female police told him to go get a pen and write his own statement…
“She then started yelling at me when I had to give a statement and she told my family to go outside.”
