Four men have been arrested in connection with an alleged attempted murder of a 72-year-old man and damage to property after his son allegedly stole a gold chain from one of the suspects.

The incident reportedly occurred at his home at 109 Pump Road, Strathspey, East Coast Demerara, on 19th January at about 2:45 am.

He resides with his wife Farida Ramsai and son 32-year-old Rajwant “Sweet Eye” Ramsai, 40-year-old Taijwattie ‘Devika’ Bhawanie and her husband 27-year-old Gavin Ramsai and one child.

Bhawanie told police that she was awakened by the breaking of windows and on investigating she saw four identifiable men hurling objects at the house.

She says she later heard that Rajwant Ramsai allegedly stole a gold chain belonging to one of the suspects.

The suspects subsequently gained entry to the upper flat where Deochand Ramsai and his family resides and ransacked the home, forcing Bhawanie and family to flee the residence.

After the suspects escaped Bhawanie returned to her home and saw most of her valuables destroyed. She told investigators that when went to the upper flat, she saw Deochand Ramsai covered in blood with lacerations to his face and about his body.

He was then taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was seen and examined by a doctor and admitted where he is said to be in a stable condition.
