One month later, man charged for fatally stabbing Leopold Street peacemaker
Akeem Dazzel, 25, was Tuesday remanded to prison after being charged with murder.
The gold miner of Tucville, Georgetown was wanted for the murder of Noel Fraser which occurred on August 12 at Leopold Street, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown.
Dazzel made his first court appearance on Tuesday before Chief Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court where the charge was read to him.
He was not required to enter a plea.
The Court heard that Fraser and Dazzel are known to each other.
On Saturday, August 12, at about 7:30 hours, Dazzel’s mother called him on the telephone and told him that someone had verbally abused her.
At about, 7:45 hours, Dazzel arrived on a motorcycle and pulled out what appeared to be a firearm from his waist and rushed into a yard at Lot 101 Leopold Street, Werk-en-Rust.
Fraser observed the firearm in Dazzel’s hand, approached him, and held onto the firearm.
Dazzel then pulled out a knife from a bag that was around his neck and inflicted a single stab to Fraser’s left side chest area. He then fled the scene on a motorcycle.
Fraser was picked up in an unconscious state and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he subsequently died while receiving treatment.
The deceased was then contacted and told of the allegation which he denied. He was then taken into police custody hence the present charge.
