Divisional Police Commander, Edgar Thomas said based on documents found on the man, his name is Cyril Harold and he lived at 2414 Tuschen Housing Scheme, East Bank Essequibo.

He says Harold was found lying on Haley Street near Hadfield Street at about 10:45 pm. He was rushed to a medical emergency tent at D’urban Park where a doctor pronounced him dead.
