A teenage burglar received a sound thrashing from an Enmore, East Coast Demerara resident, after he was caught red handed in a home in the village.
According to information, at around 04:30 hrs on Saturday the homeowner was awakened by a strange sound emanating from the upper flat of his home.
Upon checking, he was confronted by a teenager, who was armed with a chopper. The suspect has been identified as Imran Bacchus, 19, of Enmore.
The homeowner and the teenager had a scuffle during which the burglar suffered the worst of the exchange.
He was severely chopped on his hands while the homeowner sustained minor injuries.
Despite being badly wounded, Bacchus managed to escape through a window which he had earlier used to gain access into the house.
Villagers said that Bacchus was in the company of another teenager, who escaped when he heard his “partner” was being beaten.
Both the homeowner and the burglar ended up at the hospital for medical attention.
Yesterday when Kaieteur News visited the hospital, Bacchus admitted that he and his friend went to the house to “do a simple larceny” when he was caught.
He denied that he is a regular thief but when asked how he knew the term “simple larceny” he explained he learnt the phrase when he went to court a while back for stealing mangoes.
