…wants thorough investigation
The mother of a 17-year-old Charity teenager, who is nursing a broken thumb and other injuries about his body, wants her son’s attackers punished.
Wendy Rodriguez said that her son sustained a beating at the hands of two Coast Guard ranks stationed at the mouth of the Pomeroon River on Monday last. She said that her son does not know the Coast Guard officers neither did he have any altercation with the men prior to the beating.
Mrs. Rodriguez explained that on Easter Monday she and husband, along with her 17-year-old son Danniram Rodriguez and other family members went to the ball field at Charity Housing Scheme to fly kite when her son, Danniram informed her he was going to the entertainment post at Charity to socialize with his friends.
Mrs. Rodriguez added that around 16:00 hours, she received a message about her son being beaten up by two Coast Guard ranks.
The distraught mother said she was told that her son had exited the washroom when a man (Coast Guard) approached him and started to inflict blows about his body. The beating continued after the said individual proceeded to drag Danniram outside of the entertainment spot. There Mrs. Rodriguez said the man then hit her son with a beer bottle in his head.
The woman said that while the Coast Guard rating was beating her son, his friend (name given) attempted to rush to his aid but he was allegedly stomped on the chest by the Coast Guard rating’s colleague. After the alleged beating, Danniram was taken to the Oscar Joseph Hospital before being transferred to the Suddie Public Hospital.
Mrs. Rodriguez said her son lodged a complaint cum statement with officers at the Charity Outpost.
The suspect was taken into custody briefly and then released. Mrs. Rodriguez is calling for a thorough investigation into the incident.
