Police have arrested a 65-year-old man who reportedly dumped his unconscious brother in a trench at Den Amstel, West Coast Demerara Thursday night.

Police Headquarters in a statement noted that 55-year-old Winston Jordan of Back Street, Den Amstel was consuming alcohol with his brother and subsequently left his company but the brother ran behind him and tried to pull him back.

The Police report noted that Jordan held on to a neighbour’s gate but his brother continued to pull him during which he lost his grip on the gate.  Police said that the suspect pushed Jordan to the ground, resulting in the victim hitting his head on the road and losing consciousness.

The suspect then dragged his brother across the street where he threw him into a trench and refused to render assistance.

The motionless body of the man was pulled from the trench by two passersby who saw what transpired. Jordan was taken to the Leonora Cottage Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
