Dennis Marks, the man who fatally stabbed Police Sergeant Linden La Rose and injured two other Police ranks on Tuesday, was on Wednesday flown out of Matthew’s Ridge, North West District and is under Police guard at the Georgetown Public Hospital where he is receiving medical attention.  Speaking with Guyana Times on Wednesday, Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum said that once the suspect is released from hospital, he will be charged for murder among other charges. He is expected to make an appearance at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts where the charges will be read.  According to the Crime Chief, the two other Police ranks who were injured by the suspect are recuperating. Sergeant La Rose was in the company of the two others officers when they were attacked by knife wielding Marks during which La Rose was stabbed to his neck as they attempt to arrest the suspect. Reports indicate that La Rose was stabbed to his neck while the two other injured ranks were stabbed to their chest and hands respectively. The suspect was subsequently shot to the right foot. La Rose was pronounced dead on arrival at the Matthew’s Ridge Hospital.   On Wednesday, the Crime Chief explained that in relation to the rape accusation that was made against the suspect, an investigation has been launched. Guyana Times understands that the murder weapon was retrieved on Wednesday after investigators revisited the scene. In September 2015, Constable Antonio Dawson, age 28, formerly of Murphy Street, Wales, West Bank Demerara, was fatally stabbed during an attempt to arrest a man, who subsequently took his own life by slitting his throat. The incident occurred in the vicinity of the entrance to Gafoors Houston Complex, Greater Georgetown. The dead Constable was attached to the Guyana Police Force (GPF) Impact Base Unit, in Brickdam, Georgetown. Dawson reportedly sustained at least five stab wounds to his upper body. Based on reports received, the attacker was seen acting in a suspicious manner and was approached by a group of Police Officers. A confrontation subsequently ensued between one of the ranks and the man who stabbed the officer about five times.  He man then turned his rage on himself, stabbing himself in the chest and then slitting his own throat.
