Convicted rapist escapes from Mazaruni Prison


Akeem Wong, a convict serving a 15-year sentence for rape, escaped from the Mazaruni Prison in Region Seven (Cuyuni- Mazaruni) on Thursday.

A press release from the Guyana Prison Service noted that the man escaped at around 07:20 hrs.

At that time, Wong and another inmate Gilbert Gill were labouring in the wood bush in the custody of Prison Officer Torres.

While on duty, Wong asked to use the washroom and officer Torres granted him the permission. However, about five minutes later, Officer Torres decided to check on Wong. It was then that he (Wong) was discovered missing and an alarm was raised.

Ranks are searching for the escapee.
