Police were yesterday still trying to locate Sherwin Bobb, the inmate who escaped from the Camp Street Prison on Wednesday. An official confirmed that the fugitive had travelled to Pouderoyen, West Bank Demerara, hours after his escape, and had collected his two children from a house in the community. Bobb reportedly then took the children by car to a house in Leopold Street, where he left them. The fugitive’s whereabouts are unknown.
Bobb is reportedly on remand for drug possession.
Kaieteur News understands that the prisoner may have been motivated to escape after being told by other inmates that the woman with whom he had been living had started another relationship.
Bobb made good his escape just after midday on Thursday by scaling the 15-foot fence on the eastern side of the prison compound. This is despite the normal presence of armed police ranks around the perimeter of the fortified fence. According to reports, the inmate had just finished seeing a visitor at the front gate of the Camp Street Prison and had returned to his normal holding area near the tailor shop in the facility. Prison officials subsequently received a telephone call from a public-spirited individual on the outside that “a prisoner just jump the fence.” This newspaper understands that Bobb sustained cuts to his hands and other body parts from the razor wire at the top of the fence.
The escapee was reportedly seen in Albouystown by a woman who could not help noticing that he was badly cut. She said that she called the authorities, but they ignored her.
Hours later, he was spotted in the West Demerara area, where he reportedly collected his two children who were born in Cayenne.
