…but case dismissed as victims say they do not wish to pursue matter
Maverick De Abreu was hauled before Magistrate Leron Daly at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts, for allegedly discharging a loaded firearm at his pregnant girl-friend and her sister.
De Abreu was however relieved of the charges as the women took to the witness box and made sworn statements to the effect that they no longer wished to pursue the matter against the accused, to the amazement of the court.
It is alleged that the man on February 1, 2017 at Industrial Site Ruimveldt, Georgetown discharged a loaded gun at his reputed girl-friend Tiffany Herbert and sister, Jomelle Herbert with intent to maim, disfigure, disable or cause grievous bodily harm to their person.
Information reaching INews indicate that the women were in a parked car when they were approached by De Abreu. An argument reportedly ensued between the couple and he fired several shots at the vehicle. Fortunately no one was hurt in the ordeal and the matter was reported, leading to the arrest of the accused. He was charged with the offence shortly thereafter.
The Guyana Police Force (GPF) on Monday issued a wanted bulletin for Maverick De Abreu for questioning in relation to an attack on Trinidadian sensation Rodney LeBlanc commonly known as “Benjai” which occurred outside a popular Main Street night spot on April 16, 2017.
The 27-year-old man is accused of hitting LeBlanc to the face with a glass bottle, causing him to suffer severe injuries during an argument moments after the artiste wrapped up a concert.
While information remains sketchy about the circumstances surrounding the incident, INews understands there was indeed a heated argument between the soca artiste, who was allegedly heavily intoxicated, and a taxi driver.
Reports are the driver came out of his car and Benjai reportedly advanced towards him. However, after seeing the commotion outside, De Abreu allegedly rushed out and dealt the singer one blow to his face with a bottle. It was reported that earlier in the night, Benjai had misbehaved with De Abreu’s girlfriend.
