According to Bailey, he and the 26-year-old woman (named) had reportedly been in a relationship for several months in 2017. However, when the young woman travelled abroad during the latter part of the year, things turned ‘south’ in a manner of speaking, and the duo parted ways. This was until the young woman returned to Guyana in December last, when she began stalking Bailey.“She came back to Guyana and I was already moving on…She started harassing me, telling me that I cannot leave her, and she’s gonna be dangerous to me and whatever, and I started feeling scared,” he explained.Further, the young man recalled, “I was at a party on Laing Avenue and she and her brother harassed me [physically and verbally].” He noted that the matter was reported at the Ruimveldt Police Station, but the woman was never arrested.Bailey alleges that the woman’s most recent attack on him was on Tuesday last, in the vicinity of Cool Square, while he was in the company of friends. “I was standing, having a conversation with some friends. There was a car [that] pulled up. Her brother came up, slapped me with a cutlass, she draw a gun out of her purse and harassed me,” he recounted.Bailey told this publication that the woman and her brother physically assaulted him, and at one point the young woman grabbed his shirt, pointed her weapon at him, and demanded that he get into the trunk of her motor vehicle.“My friends had to jump in and say, ‘Y’all can’t kill he; ‘cause if y’all kill he, y’all gotta kill me!” he posited.Again, Bailey alleges that he reported this incident at the Ruimveldt Police Station. He, however, alleges that upon enquiring when action would be taken against the woman, ranks attached to the Station posited that they could not arrest the woman from her place of work.Bailey further alleges that the woman claims to work as a personal assistant to a current Minister of Government, and would usually boast — while harassing and abusing him in public — that her position is shielding her from prosecution.When this publication made efforts to contact the Ruimveldt Police Station to confirm whether reports of these incidents had been made, it was explained that the Officer in Charge was not in the building, and no one was left in charge to relay the information requested.last_img
