A Middle Road La Penitence man is receiving treatment for a gunshot wound to his left leg which he sustained when he tried to escape from a policeman who was about to arrest him.
The man whose name was given as Jaime Lamaison was being arrested for an alleged rape he had committed earlier yesterday.
According to reports, Lamaison is accused of raping a 13-year-old girl in a house at Middle Road, La Penitence.
“People see the girl come running out the house with she bloody clothes. Then he beat out,” a source in the area told this newspaper.
The police were called in and they remained on the lookout since they were certain that he would return home.
Sure enough, Lamaison turned up to collect some of his clothes around 18:45 hours.
A police rank who was a part of the team hunting Lamaison, confronted him and during efforts to arrest him, shot Lamaison in his leg.
He was placed into a police vehicle and taken to the Georgetown Hospital for medical attention.
