Police on the East Coast are investigating the alleged murder committed on Troy Hicks, age 46 years, a labourer of Beterverwagting Housing Scheme, ECD which occurred about last week at Hendri Triumph.
Enquiries disclosed that Hicks and the suspect had a misunderstanding earlier in the day. On Saturday last Hicks was walking on Hendricks Street, Triumph ECD where the suspect attacked him with a cutlass by chopping him about his head and shoulders. Hicks, who was armed with a dog chain and cutlass, chopped the suspect to his forehead.
The now deceased man then ran into a corner shop after a group of men started to pelt him with bricks. He also pelted bottles at the men and managed to run north on Republic Drive, Beterverwagting where the men ran after him, and where he collapsed. He was then picked up alive by the police and escorted to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Several persons were questioned and statements taken.
