A 20-year-old construction worker is currently nursing a wounded arm at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) after he was chopped by a known assailant for refusing to buy an alcoholic beverage at a bar in Enmore, East Coast Demerara.
According to Zameer Wazir, of Hope West, Enmore, he was drinking with friends at a bar in the village when he was confronted by a neighbourhood acquaintance who “demanded” a beer from him.
Wazir alleged that the person who made the demand was a known “drug-seller” and bully in the village, who targeted young men.
“I drinking good with my friends and the bully come and demand that I buy a beer for him, saying that I owe he money. But I know that I didn’t have a cent for him, so I refused and start to argue because it was harassment,” he said.
As a result of the argument, Wazir said that the man became enraged and left the bar.
A few minutes later, the assailant returned and confronted him in the bar, this time, armed with a cutlass.
When this occurred, Wazir said that he “didn’t even get a chance to speak” before the assailant dealt several chops to his left arm and escaped on a bicycle.
The construction worker said that his friends immediately rushed him to GPHC with a taxi. He said that the matter was reported at the Enmore Police Outpost but the suspect has not yet been arrested, but investigations are ongoing.
