The Guyana Police Force (GPF) has arrested a man in relation to the death of 29-year-old David Barclay of Triumph, East Coast Demerara (ECD).

Barclay was killed on Sunday at about 02:00 hrs at Durban Street, Lodge, Georgetown.

According to information received, Barclay approached the suspect in a bid to have a tyre on his vehicle repaired. While in the process of making payment, an argument ensued between the two over the price.

During the row, the suspect took a knife and slashed a tyre of Barclay. The suspect reportedly told investigators that he then jumped into his vehicle, and while in the process of driving off, the 29-year-old man jumped onto the right side front door and held on to him.

As a result, the suspect said that he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into several parked cars.

Barclay, who was left lying motionless on the roadway, was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

His body is presently at the Hospital’s mortuary awaiting a Post Mortem Examination (PME).
