Ruckus erupts at Leonora bar after owner tells patrons ‘it’s time to leave’
Police are on the hunt for four men who caused a ruckus and threw glass bottles at a bar in Leonora, West Coast Demerara on Sunday night after the owner told them he is closing in keeping with the national curfew.
In the process, they beat and injured a 29-year-old male teacher. According to a police report, at around 21:00hrs, the teacher and three of his friends were having a drink when the proprietor of the bar told them that he will be closing off due to the curfew.
At the time, there were four identifiable males and two females sitting not far from them speaking a foreign language.
It is alleged that the proprietor went over to them and informed them that he is about to close off; the four men and two women started to behave disorderly.
As a result, the teacher went over to the four men and asked them to desist from behaving in such a manner when a scuffle ensued; it is alleged that one of the suspects burst the teacher’s chain and ripped his t-shirt.
According to the police, the proprietor became angry and put the four men and two women out of his premises. The four men then started to pelt glass bottles into the yard causing one of the bottles to hit the teacher to his forehead after which they entered a white Toyota 192 (registration plates unknown) and escaped.
The victim then made a report to the Leonora Police Station, where he was handed a medical certificate and escorted to the Leonora Cottage Hospital for medical examination. He was seen and examined by a doctor on duty, treated and sent away.
