Taxi driver died from multiple stab wounds – PM

first_imgTriangular love affair…suspect still on the runAs the Police continue to hunt for the prime suspect in the murder of Linden taxi driver Claude DeJonge, who was stabbed to death on Thursday, a post mortem report showed that the man, formerly of Lot 915 South Amelia’s Ward Mackenzie, died from shock and haemorrhage caused by multiple incised wounds.Dead: Claude DeJongeThe post mortem was conducted by Government Pathologist Dr Nehaul Singh at the Georgetown Public Hospital on Friday. However, the suspect, Corwyn Arthur, also called ‘Cross eye’, 34, of Central Amelia’s Ward, remains on the run, but has been communicating with relatives of the woman with whom he shared a secret relationship.The eldest son of the woman told Guyana Times that the suspect has been in communication with him and his mother via telephone, and has since confessed to committing the crime.“We are the only two people he talking to…he told me he deh over the river (Wismar) at the back of some Wisroc,” Cleon Samuels has stated.He recalled that the suspect informed him via telephone that he burned all his clothing on Wednesday evening prior to committing the crime. Although the young Samuels remains in shock, he is worried about his three younger siblings who had witnessed the incident. “They are traumatised,” the young man stated.“He (the suspect) call me and he say, ‘Cleon, you know what I do?’…We left shock because this boy does come…and we does cook and enjoy we self,” Samuels said in disbelief.Samuel further added that the suspect informed him that he was going to take his own life, but he urged him to rethink his decision. A Police source has confirmed that the suspect has not been apprehended, and that ranks in the division are searching every possible area to make sure he is caught.DeJonge was reportedly killed in an apparent triangular love affair on Thursday morning, while in bed with his girlfriend at her Lot 1074 Cinderella City, Amelia’s Ward home.DeJonge was found at about 00:10h lying motionless in a pool of blood next to the front door. He was clad in trousers and his body bore several stab wounds to the neck, shoulder and abdomen.Based on information received, the now dead man had shared a common-law relationship with his girlfriend Tanya Samuels, 35, for approximately 11 years.However, it is believed that the mother of two and the suspect, Corwyn Arthur, shared a secret relationship, and as such, he would periodically sleep over at her house.It was reported that the relationship ended in December 2017, but Arthur would still visit Samuels’s home under the pretext of being a family friend. On Wednesday evening, the suspect reportedly visited the woman’s home, where he saw DeJonge.At the time, the suspect was smoking marijuana, which annoyed the now dead man, who asked him to leave the premises.An argument erupted between the two men, but the suspect left after DeJonge summoned the Police. In retaliation, the suspected later sent threatening messages to DeJonge’s phone, informing him that he would “make his life a living hell”. Instead, he stabbed the man to death during a scuffle after he entered Samuels’s premises.last_img read more

Lakers notes: L.A. tries to pick up defense

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Lakers coach Phil Jackson, meanwhile, was upset by defensive breakdowns in the fourth quarter. The Lakers twice tied the score in the last four minutes only to watch it slip away. Jackson was perplexed as Smush Parker and Devean George lost track of Utah guard Keith McLeod in a screen around the basket. McLeod was left alone by Parker and flipped in a layup with 1:17 remaining to put the Jazz in front for good. “It was a mistake, it was a big mistake,” Jackson said. “Smush automatically switched. You can’t do that when you’re that man. You have to get called to help.” Jackson even talked to his team about how their late-game decisions could translate to the choices they make in life, especially when it comes to evaluating risk and reward. But the Lakers found their defense lacking in the first game without Bryant, a 98-94 loss to Utah on Sunday. The Jazz came to Staples Center as the league’s 28th-ranked offensive team but totaled 53 points by halftime and too many easy baskets late. “We have to play a better defensive game,” Odom said. “I think we thought we were going to win that game just by beating them on offense. We can’t let them get 98 at home. We should be able to sit on this team a little bit and stop them.” EL SEGUNDO – As soon as Kobe Bryant was suspended by the NBA last week, Lamar Odom hit upon a theme for the Lakers in the two games they would play without their superstar guard, the league’s second-leading scorer. To win without their best offensive player, Odom reasoned, the Lakers would need to play their best defensive games of the season. center_img “If you’re doing the same things in your life,” Jackson said, “you’re living a pretty scattered and hectic life and you’ve got to really take this opportunity to change.” The Lakers have lost their past four games by a combined 13 points. They are 5-8 in games decided by five points or less this season. “Our situation is that we’re still a team that’s sitting above .500 and we have to learn how to win close games because that’s what it comes down to in the playoffs,” Jackson said. They also have some history to avoid tonight in Salt Lake City. Not since March 6, 1994 has a Jackson-coached team lost five consecutive games. The Lakers twice suffered through four-game losing streaks in Jackson’s first tenure. Foul shooting: The Lakers missed 5 of 8 free throws in the fourth quarter Sunday and went 15 of 25 from the line in the game. Yet there was one bright spot. Forward Kwame Brown, shooting 46.8 percent from the line this season, sank both free throws when he went to the line in the second quarter. Jackson said he was told it was the first time all season Brown had done so. Also: Rookie center Andrew Bynum hasn’t played in the past five games. … Bryant attended practice Monday but still was feeling under the weather. Ross Siler, (818) 713-3610 ross.siler@dailynews.com LAKERS at UTAH Tipoff: 6 p.m., Delta Center TV/Radio: Ch. 9; 570-AM, 1330-AM (Spanish) Lakers (15-15) update: The last time they were in Salt Lake City, the Lakers prevailed 105-101 at the end of a three-hour overtime marathon. Kobe Bryant drew a controversial foul with 0.4 seconds left in regulation and sank two free throws. Bryant fouled out with 2:07 remaining in overtime. Utah (15-16) update: The Jazz has won four in a row and could return to .500 for the first time since Nov. 14 with a victory tonight. Forward Andrei Kirilenko, who has missed 10 games this season, is averaging 18 points and 9.8 rebounds in four games since returning from back spasms. – Ross Siler 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Hibs boss Neil Lennon floored by object, wants to meet perpetrator face to face

first_img Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ Hearts were celebrating in stoppage-time when Clevid Dikamona headed home but the goal was disallowed for offside and seconds later Lennon appeared to be struck by a coin in the face.Lennon – who was attacked by a fan on the touchline at Tynecastle while Celtic manager – fell to the deck but was soon back on his feet after treatment.“I’m all right,” he said after the match. “They must have a few quid up here because it was a pound coin. But it’s no laughing matter, I hope somebody deals with it and I’d like to meet the guy face to face.”He added: “It’s all disgraceful. The players are doing their job and trying to entertain people, I don’t understand the mentality of any supporter who wants to throw things at people. I have seen plenty of it at the weekend as well and it’s very unsavoury and needs to be stopped.“If a Hibs fan has thrown anything at the goalkeeper, then he should be punished and banned. We don’t condone any of that behaviour at all, it’s disgraceful.”“Hopefully there will be punishment for both supporters if the authorities can pick them out, and like I said, I would like to meet that person, in person.”Both teams were missing players due to an array of injuries, but Hearts started the game on the front foot with Olly Lee forcing a save from distance and Dikamona coming close from an ambitious overhead kick.But Darren McGregor missed a better chance at the other end when he could not turn a free header on target from a deep corner.Stevie Mallan then took centre stage with a series of wonderful long-range efforts. The Hibs midfielder hit the bar from 30 yards, shaved the top of the goal from a free-kick and then forced Zlamal to scramble the ball wide after aiming a free-kick from near the touchline inside the near post while everyone else anticipated a cross. The coin (circled) appeared to bounce off the right side of Lennon’s face 2 Hibernian boss Neil Lennon and Hearts goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal were both floored by foreign objects during a chaotic and goalless Edinburgh derby.Zlamal was able to continue after the latest in a series of flashpoints moments after Florian Kamberi received a second yellow card in the 65th minute following a mass bust-up that saw angry scenes in the technical area as well as on the Tynecastle pitch.

Martin Boyle escaped with a yellow card after pushing Michael Smith three times following an off-the-ball clash which also saw the Hearts full-back booked.A more widespread melee soon followed after Kamberi was penalised for an aerial challenge on Oliver Bozanic. Ben Garuccio reacted particularly angrily and both he and the Swiss striker were booked – the latter paying a heftier price after being yellow-carded for what looked an innocuous aerial challenge in the first half.Moments later, after tackles flew in from both sides, Zlamal was floored by what appeared to be an away fan attempting to make contact with the goalkeeper as he fetched the ball from behind the goal.Hearts struggled to press home their numerical advantage but Dikamona hit the edge of the bar in the last minute following a corner before guiding a backwards header into the net after Adam Bogdan had got caught in no-man’s land following another corner.But with the keeper well off his line, Dikamona was ruled to be offside, sparking the latest attack on Lennon at Tynecastle.

Owner of pit bulls may face charges

first_img Corrigan said he had seen the dogs loose on the street before and said they were a chronic problem in the neighborhood. “A few of the neighbors told me they had nothing but problems with these dogs, and animal control had been out before,” Corrigan said. “The dogs were taken away and kept coming back.” One neighbor said that one of the dogs chased him into his house, Corrigan said. In August, animal-control officers rounded up two dozen roaming dogs in Lake Los Angeles and in north and east Lancaster in a crackdown inspired by an upsurge in pit-bull attacks since spring. The sweep was part of an effort that includes increasing the Antelope Valley animal-control staff size, launching a public education campaign and stepping up efforts to identify and monitor potentially vicious dogs. Animal-control officials reported in August that there were 23 dog attacks this year in the Antelope Valley, up from six in all of 2004. Of the attacks, all but one involved pit bulls or pit-bull mixes. The worst came in March, when a 47-year-old woman was knocked down and mauled by a neighbor’s pit bull-retriever mix. Sheriff’s deputies shot the dog to death as it bit the woman’s arm. In six other incidents, pit bulls or pit-bull mixes caused minor injuries to people, and in eight cases they attacked other animals. Other incidents involved dogs menacing people. Besides the Quartz Hill dog and before Friday’s incident, Lancaster sheriff’s deputies have shot five other pit bulls or pit-bull mixes that threatened them this year, and Palmdale sheriff’s deputies shot to death a dog that chased children walking to school.

You’re all set! LAKE LOS ANGELES – County officials are considering misdemeanor charges against the owner of two pit bull dogs shot and killed by sheriff’s deputies after the animals charged the officers. The dogs were shot Friday after residents had reported that the dogs were loose and biting people, and Los Angeles County Animal Control officials said there was at least one prior incident in which the dogs had roamed free. “Officers are completing their investigation. We do know the owner of the dogs. We expect to file charges later this week, either dangerous-dog or public-nuisance charges,” said Kaye Michelson, spokeswoman with the Department of Animal Care and Control. The incident occurred about noon Friday in the 40900 block of 178th Street East after one person was bit. The owner’s name was not released.

He went outside and saw the dogs, a small female and a large male, by the side of his house. The female dog charged first, followed by the male, Corrigan said. “The male got a hold of my hand, bit me and released me and then backed off.” Corrigan said he ran into the house and got a shotgun, but by the time he came back out, the dogs were gone. Corrigan said he was treated for his injuries at Antelope Valley Hospital. Deputies found the dogs near a house where no one was home and shot them after they ran toward the officers and tried to attack them, deputies said. When animal-control officers arrived, one dog was dead and the other was severely injured, Michelson said. The wounded dog was taken to a local veterinarian’s office, where it had to be euthanized because of the extent of the injuries, Michelson said. last_img read more

“I thought I was going to die,” says assault victim Shanan

first_imgA young woman says she is convinced she was seconds from death after being brutally assaulted in an unprovoked attack in Letterkenny.Shanan Reid-McDaid had enjoyed a night out with friends on Saturday evening and was looking for a taxi.She was approached from behind by a man who called her a ‘slut’ and a bitch’ close to the Market Square area of the town. When she turned around to confront the man, she was punched in the face and fell to the ground.Her attacker, whom she didn’t know, then proceeded to repeatedly punch her several times while standing over her.Shanan, an 18-year-old Arts student at Galway University, said she simply doesn’t know how she survived the attack.She told Donegal Daily “He looked very normal and I just didn’t know why he would call me those names. Not that it matters what I was wearing but I had a long black coat on so I don’t know why he called me those names. “When I turned around to confront him, he just punched me in the face and I fell down. He then started punching me over and over again.“I just mumbled that I was sorry, I was sorry and I pleaded with him to stop. If the attack had lasted any longer, I’m convinced I would have died.“I don’t know why he stopped but he did and I’m just thankful that he did.”Shanan, from Illistrin on the outskirts of Letterkenny, had been out with her boyfriend Glen and two other friends who were a short distance away but did not hear her ordeal which happened around 3am.The group had walked to the top of the Market Square area, a popular thing for local people to do in order to hail a taxi. “When I caught up with them they just couldn’t believe what had happened. They went looking for the guy but he was gone,” she added.Shanan spent the next four hours in Letterkenny University Hospital and was due to attend Sligo Hospital today for more treatment but that was cancelled due to Storm Ophelia.She described her attacker as being between 30 and 40 years and clean shaven with a Donegal or Northern accent and had brown or dirty blonde hair.She said he was wearing a navy/dark coloured blazer with a white/lightcoloured shirt underneath and dark denim jeans. The young student said she has no plans to go out again after her horrific ordeal.“You hear of these things happening but you never think it will happen to you. I don’t know why this man attacked me. I do know that from what I went through that he is capable of doing it again.“I’m a pretty normal girl going to college and trying to get on with things and now this has completely knocked me.“After this, I would certainly say to girls out there not to be anywhere alone. My boyfriend was nearby and he still didn’t know what had happened to me. Be close to people at all times,” she said.Shanan has reported the incident to Letterkenny gardai.Meanwhile, the chairman of Donegal County Council, Cllr Gerry McMonagle, saidattacks on young women in Letterkenny were becoming all too frequent.He appealed to people not to walk home alone and to take taxis while out.“This is happening all too often. This is not the first time we haveheard of a young woman being attacked and this is simply anothershocking incident.“This woman is certainly not to blame but I would appeal to friends ofpeople not to leave them alone at night but to ensure they get taxisor are walked home safely.“We obviously have an issue with this sort of thing in Letterkenny andit needs to be addressed.“I wish the young woman a speedy recovery and I hope she is okayfollowing her horrific ordeal,” he said.“I thought I was going to die,” says assault victim Shanan was last modified: October 17th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:attackdonegalletterkennyShanan Reid McDaidlast_img read more

Chelsea boss hails ‘monster’ Matic

first_imgChelsea manager Jose Mourinho described matchwinner Nemanja Matic as a “monster” after the midfielder’s majestic display in the 1-0 Champions League win over Sporting Lisbon.Matic’s grabbed the only goal in impressive away victory – the margin of which would have been much greater had the Blues been more clinical in attack.But the Serbian’s all-round quality shone throughout a vital away victory.“Matic is a monster,” said Mourinho, who also praised Sporting goalkeeper Rui Patricio.“I am not happy we did not score another goal but the biggest reason for that was not my players but the Sporting goalkeeper.“The most difficult thing is to play like we play since the beginning of the season,” Mourinho added in praising his side’s level of performance.“Against Aston Villa and Bolton we did not kill the game. Today it was difficult to kill the game but the reality is that we played so well, so compact and so confident – with so much control.“The four defenders plus Matic and Cesc Fabregas had compete dominance in the game.”More reaction to follow.See also:Matic gives Chelsea victory in LisbonSporting v Chelsea player ratingsFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
