Kaieteur News – April 2, 2008

Police on the East Coast of Demerara have launched a manhunt for a deportee who doused his estranged lover with corrosive acid, completely disfiguring her face.

According to reports, about 09:15 hours yesterday security guard Alana Yaw, 34, of Triumph, East Coast Demerara, was on her way home when the man with whom she had recently severed a relationship allegedly threw the acid in her face.

An eyewitness recalled that the man came up from behind the woman and first poured the liquid behind her neck. When the woman turned around, the man emptied the contents of the bottle in her face before making good his escape.

The screaming woman was assisted by public spirited persons and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation where she has been admitted.
