An accountant employed at Humphrey’s Bakery remains hospitalised as a result of being beaten unconscious before his car was hijacked by a bandit in Caneview Avenue, South Ruimveldt, last Wednesday.
Christopher Ally, of James Street, Albouystown, has for a week now been nursing injuries to the head and about the body, but is said to be in a stable condition in the Male Surgical Ward of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).
The 28-year-old yesterday related the series of events that led to his misfortune.
According to Ally, he was engaged in an online relationship with a girl who identified herself as “Princess Lisa” on the social media website Facebook.
Ally said that “Lisa”, who never told him her full name, became very close to him during the past four months, as they frequently texted and called each other.
Ally alleged that it was “Lisa” who coordinated the well-schemed hijacking of his vehicle, a Nissan Bluebird.
According to the accountant, last Wednesday evening, he was invited by the girl “to her aunt’s home”, on Caneview Avenue, South Ruimveldt.
Ally related that the girl “did not know how to give directions to the house”, and so decided to hand over her phone to her supposed neighbour to do so.
The man said that he was directed to the “head of Caneview Avenue,” where he saw a man signaling him.
Ally said that the individual entered his vehicle and identified himself as “Lisa’s neighbour” and provided the location of the girl’s house within the street.
Arriving at “Lisa’s” home around 20:30 hours, the neighbour instructed Ally to park in the yard, as many “thief-men like to steal vehicle parts in the area.”
Complying, Ally parked his vehicle in the yard and locked it before he exited to wait on “Lisa”.
Ally said that the “neighbour” then walked to the back door of the house, and began knocking, while calling for “Lisa”. However, there was no answer.
The accountant, who said he then became suspicious, decided to call the “neighbour” to his vehicle, to inquire from him, about the girl’s whereabouts.
Ally said that the man replied, “I’m coming, hold on.”
After a few minutes had elapsed, Ally alleged that “Lisa’s neighbour” approached him silently from behind, and dealt him blows to his head and face, which left him unconscious.
He said when he regained consciousness about one hour after the attack, he was still in the yard, but his vehicle (PRR 959) was gone.
The accountant said that he was left in a state of “shock and embarrassment, and did not know what to do.” He said that he started to knock on the door and call for “Lisa” but there was no answer.
He added that he did not want to talk to any neighbours concerning the matter, as he was emotionally distressed and embarrassed.
Ally, who said he was in serious pain, decided to sleep on the patio of the house until the next (Thursday) morning, when he decided to make his way to the Ruimveldt Police Station with a taxi.
After making his report, the accountant said that he was taken to the hospital by police ranks.
Ally insisted that he can recall the location of the house, and is keen on carrying out a thorough investigation with the help of law enforcement officers.
He said that police officers informed him that his vehicle was found yesterday afternoon in Nandy Park, East Bank Demerara, with all four of its rims missing.
Meanwhile, efforts to track the mysterious “Lisa” proved futile as the individual deleted the Facebook account and is no longer using the number that Ally was using to contact her.
