Queenstown man remanded for threatening to kill brother


A Queenstown, Georgetown man who was on Friday charged for chasing his sibling while being armed with a cutlass, landed himself on remand when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
Delon Derushe denied that on September 27, at Queenstown, Georgetown, he made use of threatening language towards Rayon Goddett, his brother.
Police Prosecutor Christopher Morris told the court that On September 27, the Virtual Complainant, who is a serving member of the Guyana Police Force (GPF), arrived at his residence where his 29-year-old brother started to use abusive language towards him.
The court further heard, that after the VC ignored Derushe, he armed himself with a cutlass and knife and started to chase Goddett around the yard, whilst threatening to take his life.
A report was made at the Alberttown Police station and Derushe was later arrested and charged for the offence.
The prosecutor objected to bail being on the grounds of the serious nature of the allegation and the penalty the charge attracts. Prosecutor Morris further noted that Derushe was previously charged for threatening to kill his mother.
The magistrate, after listening to the facts, remanded Derushe to prison. The case will continue on October 11.
