A 25-year-old man who recently escaped from the Golden Grove Police Station by smashing out some concrete blocks that are located near the washroom, was yesterday charged with the capital offence of murder.
Wayne Gilbert, of Lot 30 West La Penitence appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts and was not required to plead to the charge which alleged that on January 20, last, at Croal Street, he murdered Rawle Rodrigues, during the course of a robbery. Gilbert is the third person charged for the murder.
Afibia Yankana, 27, of Hadfield Street and Akeem Haymer are currently on remand for the murder.
According to information, Rodrigues, 43, of Lot 64, Leopold Street, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown, was in the vicinity of the Dairy bus park, Parfaite Harmonie at around 21:30hrs, when he had an altercation with three men. One of the men later stabbed him in the chest. Reports indicated that the father of three was waiting for a mini-bus when he was robbed of his iPhone before being stabbed to death.
Rodrigues was subsequently rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
