Ann’s Grove man arrested for murder of North West resident
A 44-year-old pork-knocker from Ann’s Grove, East Coast Demerara is in Police custody over the stabbing death of Joel Ramitt, a 24-year-old Labourer of Red Hill, North West District (NWD).
Ramitt died Friday night after being stabbed at an apartment complex located at Port Kaituma Water Front.
A statement from Police Headquarters noted that on April 01, the 44-year-old suspect booked a room at the complex and remained there until April 07.
At about 23:00 hrs, he secured his room and left but later a 28-year-old man saw Ramitt jumping out a window from the suspect’s room with a haversack on his back.
Police said the 28-year-old man held on to Ramitt and took him to the suspect.
“The man told the suspect he saw Ramitt exiting his room. The suspect checked the haversack and recognised it was his. The suspect then pulled a knife from his waist and dealt the victim one stab to his abdomen. The victim ran to Port Kaituma Police Station and made a report,” the Police statement added.
The ranks observed the victim’s intestines were protruding and immediately rushed him to Port Kaituma Hospital, where he was admitted in a critical condition.
The suspect was arrested and a search was conducted inside his room which revealed one black handle knife with a red substance that appeared to be blood on it.
Ramjit succumbed at about 08:00 hrs on Saturday.
