A brawl in the Georgetown Prisons over music ended with alleged gang member, Colwyn Cort, called ‘Dutchie’ being rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation with head injuries.
Reports indicate that Cort and other inmates were watching television in the North Dormitory around 17.00 hrs when a row broke out over what type of music the prisoners should listen to.
The row escalated into a fight and Cort sustained injuries to the head.
While hospital sources said that he was chopped a prison official stated that the inmate was beaten.
He was treated at the infirmary before being transported to the GPHC’s Accident and Emergency Unit.
His condition is listed as stable.
Colwyn Cort, Randolph Rodrigues, called ‘Shoulders’, and Jason Mc Kenzie, called ‘Psycho’, were charged with attempted murder last September for allegedly chopping four other prisoners and dousing them with acid in the New Amsterdam Prison.
The assailants and victims were said to be members of separate gangs.
