Wanted bulletin issued for attempted murder suspect
Police Headquarters on Tuesday issued a wanted bulletin for Bernard Dove, a 41-year-old man, who badly injured 31-year-old Devon Williams last week at Falls Top Village in Region One (Barima- Waini).
Dove is wanted for attempted murder.
Anyone who has information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the Police Force on 225-8196, 226-7476, 225-2317, 225-8196, 227-1149 or the nearest Police Station.
Williams’ sister, Dorona Williams, had told the News Room that Dove attacked her and her uncle without provocation at about 23:00 hrs last Wednesday at Falls Top. As such, Devon intervened and attempted to chase the attacker away.
Moments later, she recalled, Dove armed himself with an arrow and bow and struck Devon; he fled the scene afterwards.
Devon sustained a deep wound across his abdomen, leaving several internal organs exposed. He was taken to the Port Kaituma Hospital for treatment and later transferred to the Georgetown Hospital.
Police Commander of Region One, Himnauth Sawh, confirmed that the matter is being treated as a murder attempt and investigations are ongoing.
He, however, noted that Dove is a known aggressor and is suspected to have fled to hard-to-reach backdam areas of the region.
