-nursing gunshot wound
The hunt for Georgetown prison escapee, Stafrei Alexander, ended yesterday, with his capture
in the backlands at Hampshire, Corentyne.
At the time of his capture, Alexander, also known as “Mad Dog,” was nursing a bullet wound to the left foot. He was taken to the Port Mourant Hospital.
He is believed to have been shot just over a week ago, during a narrow escape from Joint Services ranks, while resting in a hammock in the Port Mourant backlands.
Commander of B Division, Paul Williams, told Kaieteur News that ranks were mobilized Friday night, based on reliable information that the escapee was spotted in the Topoo area, located about a mile away from where Alexander was nabbed.
“Since last night we were doing our various operations, searching drug houses and abandoned places,” he explained.
Commissioner David Ramnarine stated that based on information received from members of the public, a special operation was launched in ‘B’ Division with support from Police Headquarters. “This led to the re-capture of Georgetown Prison escapee Stafrei Alexander aback of the village of Hampshire in the Corentyne. At the time of his re-capture Alexander had an existing wound and is receiving medical attention at an undisclosed medical institution.
“While the nature of the wound has not been confirmed at this time, it is believed he sustained the wound during a previous confrontation with the Joint Services,” a Department of Public Information release stated.
Still at large are Mark Royden Durant, Uree Varswyck and Cobena Stephens, who, along with Alexander, escaped from the Camp Street Prison on July 9.
Also at large are Paul Goriah, Shawn Harris, Kerry Cromwell and Clive Forde, all of whom escaped from the Lusignan facility.
The Guyana Police Force thanks the members of the public who provided the information which led to Alexander’s capture and asks that the public continue to provide information which is critical to the re-capture of all the prison escapees. Seven fugitives remain on the run.
