Archbishop: Trinis too angry

AS the country’s murder toll continues to climb, Archbishop Charles Jason Gordon is questioning why are citizens so angry. That anger, he said, was contributing to the violence now plaguing the country.

Is it the unemployment in these Islands that are contributing to this violence?

Are they too many gangs roaming the streets?
What is causing this?

I am convinced that if we young men live to reach 40 years old, we should hold one big party and thank the Almighty.

How come there are not that many young women carrying out these stupid acts?

Woman raped, left in Caura

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the ab­duc­tion and rape of a 58-year-old woman who board­ed a PH taxi in Curepe on Fri­day.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are warn­ing of se­r­i­al rapists lurk­ing along the East/West cor­ri­dor pos­ing as PH dri­vers.

This lat­est in­ci­dent adds to five oth­er re­ports of women be­ing raped and dumped in the Cau­ra area.

Some of the vic­tims were younger and were stabbed, po­lice said.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, at about 8 pm the lat­est vic­tim got in­to a black ‘PH’ taxi near. The vic­tim told po­lice that she was in the back­seat when a man jumped in the front pas­sen­ger seat right af­ter she en­tered the car.

Min­utes fol­lowed two oth­er pas­sen­gers - a man and a woman en­tered the back of the ve­hi­cle on ei­ther side of her sand­wich­ing her in the mid­dle.

The fe­male pas­sen­ger was the first pas­sen­ger to ex­it and as she was get­ting out of the ve­hi­cle the pas­sen­ger in the back seat cuffed the vic­tim to the face and knocked her un­con­scious.

When she re­gained con­scious­ness, she told po­lice, she was ly­ing in some bush­es close to a road­way as she heard pass­ing ve­hi­cles.

CEPEP worker killed in Diego Martin

THE CEPEP worker shot dead earlier today has been identified as Richard Baird, a 46-year-old man of Broome Street, Four Roads in Diego Martin.

Police are now trying to determine whether gunmen were targeting him, or if this was tragic case of mistaken identity.

According to reports, at about 8.45 am, Baird had a jersey wrapped over his face and head to keep dust out as he was cleaning parts of Second Street in Petit Valley.

Four masked men approached and ordered him to take off the white jersey. Shortly after, gunshots were heard. Police are not sure whether he took off the 'mask' and was identified as a target or refused to take it off and was shot after.

Four arrested after Maracas murder

FOUR people have been arrested in relation to the murder of 26-year-old Kiedon Williams on the North Coast Road, Maracas Bay, on Sunday night.

Newsday understands police received information shortly after the shooting that the suspects were driving along the Blanchisseusse Road, Arima, and intercepted them.

The suspects, who include three men and one woman, were searched, along with the car they were travelling in, but no weapons were found.

Newsday spoke to Williams’ relatives at the Forensic Science Centre, St James, yesterday. They said he went to a party at the beach and did not believe he would be killed.

They also denied earlier reports on social media that he was affiliated with any gang.

“They are always quick to label it as gang-related whenever it is a Muslim involved, but he was not a part of any gang.

“He was also from Gonzales in Port of Spain, not Enterprise, Chaguanas, like they said on social media.”
