Ahmad Ally, a 37-year-old man from Peters Hall, East Bank Demerara was arrested by police ranks after a video surfaced on social media showing two Venezuelan nationals being bullied while told to strip naked and altogether treated inhumanely

The Guyana Police Force says Ally remains in custody and is assisting detectives with the ongoing investigation.

Ally turned himself in at about 13:30hrs on Wednesday at the Providence Police Station, accompanied by his lawyer.

“He was arrested and escorted to the Golden Grove Police Station, where he was video-interviewed in the presence of his lawyer.

“He admitted during the interview that he indeed had a cutlass in his hands, instructed the victims to say that they were thieves and ordered them to take off all their clothing and walk naked down the street,” the Police statement noted.

The suspect claimed that he never assaulted the victims, nor was he aware of who made the video.

“He was confronted with the victims, and they maintained he made the video with a red phone.

“The suspect had a red phone on his person, which was checked, but no video of the incident was in it,” the Police statement added.


The phone was lodged and will be sent to CID headquarters to check for deleted videos. Ally remains in custody.
