Teen surrenders after murdering brother-in-law, stabbing sisters and children
A fifteen-year-old boy who stabbed his brother-in-law to death before attacking his two sisters and three children, on Friday afternoon surrendered to police.
The suspect on Thursday attacked 55-year-old Ramdat Singh known as ‘Shami’ with a knife at their Bat Creek, St Monica, Upper Pomeroon River home. Singh, a labourer of Aberdeen, Essequibo Coast, was stabbed several times about his body and succumbed at the scene.
The teen then turned his attention to his two sisters, stabbing one several times about the body and the other to her neck.
He subsequently stabbed three children – ages 6, 3 and 1.
The injured persons were all transferred to the Suddie Hospital where two of them were rushed to the theatre for emergency surgery, while the others were admitted to the Intensive Care Unit in a stable condition.
The suspect initially fled the area but turned himself over to police on Friday when investigators visited the house to continue their investigation.
He told the police that he has no recollection of what he did and initially put up a fight before he surrendered.
An investigation is ongoing progress.
