Parika woman was beaten to death with piece of wood – Police


The Guyana Police Force on Sunday said Amanda Persaud, the Parika, East Bank Essequibo woman killed by her ex-lover, was beaten with a piece of wood he picked up from the road.

A recording of the incident was shared with Police, revealing the horrific details.

Police headquarters said that Guradean Lallaram, a 39-year-old mason of Parika Façade, was on an electric scooter when he approached Persaud, 25, on Sunday morning.

The two got into a heated argument and the man came off of the scooter, picked up a piece of wood from the roadside and dealt the victim one lash to her head, causing her to fall to the ground.

He then allegedly stood over her and dealt her several lashes to her face with the wood, causing her to bleed profusely.

The entire ordeal was recorded by a resident in the area. The suspect dropped the wood and made good his escape on the scooter, but he stopped a short distance away and hid in a clump of bushes.

The Police were immediately summoned by residents in the area. The man’s hideout was made known and he was arrested and taken to the Parika Police Station. The piece of wood was also collected by Police.

Devi Persaud, the victim’s sister told the News Room that the pair were in a relationship and that they recently broke up after Amanda decided to leave the abusive situation.

The woman said Lallaram made countless threats and beat her sister several times. The couple lived with Amanda’s family and the family witnessed these events and advised her to break off the relationship and get a restraining order against him.

She eventually heeded their advice but did not get the restraining order because his family assured her that they would speak with him, Devi said. But on Sunday the man waited outside their home for her to leave and go to the market to approach her.
