Keyianna suspect to get CT scan
Doctors at the Port-of-Spain General Hospital have ordered a CT scan for the 33-year-old suspect in the kidnapping of six-year-old Keyianna Noel after he began urinating and spitting blood. The suspect’s attorney Fareed Ali told the T&T Guardian his client complained of abdominal, chest and head pain after his arrest on Thursday morning. The suspect also had slurred speech and was speaking incoherently. He spent one night at the hospital and yesterday doctors ordered the test to determine the full extent of the man’s injuries.
The suspect, who had been on the run since he released the child on December 18, complained of being in pain while in custody at the Besson Street Police Station. He was held by members of the North Eastern Division Task Force headed by Insp Roger Alexander and including Sgt Cornelius Samuel, Cpl Williams, and PC Mootoor. He failed to surrender twice to police before his arrest.
On December 17, Keyianna was taken from her family’s Duncan Street, Port-of-Spain, apartment. A report was made to the Besson Street police and the next day police picked her up along the Priority Bus Route (PBR) in Aranguez. The man is expected to appear in court on Monday.
