A 64 year-old pensioner violently attacked and wounded an employee of the Guyana Power & Light Inc.
The employee is a member of a disconnection crew that went to the Lot 128 Sophia resident’s home to disconnect her electricity.
The police noted that minutes later, a police patrol responded and during the process of arresting the female suspect, she allegedly stabed her victim to his right jaw with a knife and slashed a female rank on her left hand before being subdued.
The victims were escorted to the GPHC where they were treated; the Woman Constable was sent away whilst the Linesman was admitted in a stable condition.
The suspect, whom investigators learned is suffering from a mental disorder, has been released on bail and the case file will soon be forwarded for advise
