An inmate at the Lusignan Prison on the East Coast of Demerara escaped from the facility in the wee hours of today.
The man has been identified as 38-year-old Quincy Clarke of West La Penitence, Georgetown. He escaped sometime between 02:00 and 02:10 hours today.
The police said two prison ranks were on duty at the holding bay when they noticed an unidentifiable male running and pushing a black and red XR motorcycle.
The officers shouted at the male to stop but he didn’t and a chase ensued. The male then dropped the motorcycle, jumped a trench and ran west into some bushes making good his escape.
The ranks, who gave chase, later learnt that the individual was a prisoner and the motorcycle belonged to a Prison officer.
Clarke was sentenced to two-four weeks terms concurrently for two counts of threatening language on Thursday.
