Teen files harassment complaint against Kwame McCoy
The mother of a 17-year-old boy who lives in Diamond, East Bank Demerara, yesterday morning filed a harassment complaint against Presidential Information Liaison Kwame McCoy. According to the woman, Denise Jones, her son is being constantly harassed by McCoy.
The woman told Kaieteur News that it was an incident yesterday morning that prompted her to take her son to make the complaint to the police.
According to Jones, it was around 8:30hrs yesterday that her son was walking along the street when McCoy drove up behind him. The woman said that McCoy questioned her son about his telephone number and where he was living. The mother said that her son became somewhat boisterous towards McCoy.
It was alleged that the President’s Press Liaison Officer asked another villager about the young man’s whereabouts. Again McCoy was not given any information about the teenager.
The teen along with his parents later made the complaint to Police at the Providence Police station.
According to the young man’s father, McCoy lives in the same community and whenever he sees the young man he would drive slowly behind him asking him details about himself. The man said his son became tired of what he considered “advances” and his parents thought it best to file a police report.
A Senior Police Officer has since confirmed that the report was filed and is being looked at. Efforts to contact McCoy for a comment were unsuccessful. His mobile phone was not answered.
This is not the first time that McCoy has been implicated in making advances to teenage boys. Several years ago McCoy was ensnarled in a nasty scandal with another teen from Linden.
