Police have arrested a 22-year-old Anna Regina Squatting area resident for the murder of 17-year-old Alex Narine, formerly of Colombia Village on the Essequibo.
Reports are that the two men had a scuffle which resulted in the teenager’s death. The suspect was said to be in possession of the murder weapon, a knife, at the time of his arrest.
Narine, who is employed in the interior, died before receiving medical attention at the Suddie Public Hospital. He was the eldest of five siblings.
According to police, Alex Narine, Suresh Narine and the suspect were imbibing high wine, at a pavilion, located at a drying floor at the Anna Regina Squatting area sometime Monday. The suspect was reportedly listening to music which was playing through his computer.
The report added that Alex Narine was at some point in time said to be interfering with the buttons of the computer and was warned by the suspect to desist from touching his computer. The report added that a scuffle ensued between Narine and the man, which resulted in the suspect inflicting a single stab wound to the left side of the teen’s back.
Narine ran and fell to the ground, while the suspect fled the scene. The teen was taken to the Suddie Public Hospital and the police were informed about the incident.
Meanwhile, at the Suddie Public Hospital, Narine’s father Davaratt Narine related that he last saw his son around 8am on Monday when the teen had left his Colombia residence for Anna Regina Squatting Area.
The elder Narine said he was alerted about his son’s demise after he received a phone call from someone.
The lad’s mother was inconsolable.
Persons in the Anna Regina Squatting area were reluctant to comment about the incident.
