Read full embarassing report: Six prisoners held for serious crimes yesterday morning attempted to escape from the Georgetown Prison but only one managed to scale the fence and he was eventually recaptured in Rasville as a result of quick action by members of the Joint Services.
The police last night said that the incident occurred at 3.45 am yesterday when the six - comprising murder and narcotics accused - managed to cut through a metal grill in the supposedly secure capital section and got into the compound.
Police identified the six as Paul Bagot, Dennis Williams called `Anaconda’, Royden Williams known as Royden Durant, Jermaine Savory, Wayne Archibald and Sherwin Moses also known as Sherwin Nero.
The police said that an alert prison officer observed them making efforts to scale the outer wall of the prison and sounded an alarm. Five of the escapees were recaptured in the compound while Moses successfully got over the wall and was recaptured in Rasville around two hours later. Sources say it appeared that he caught transportation to the area.
