Escaped convict tricks police with false name
CASTRIES – One of two men who escaped the Richfond Police Station lockup in Dennery over the weekend had given the police a wrong name.
Police Information Officer Aniel Innocent said Kevin Alphonse was the name given but further investigations revealed that the escapee’s real name is Davidson Alfred.
“He gave the wrong name to the police. He is 27 and has had previous convictions,” Innocent said.
Alfred is still on the run after he, along with McQuard Alexander, 32, also known as C Code, of La Caye, Dennery escaped lawful custody between 10:30 and 11:45 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27.
Alexander was recaptured at about 10:00 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 28 at the junction of La Caye, Dennery. The hunt is now on for Alfred who is described as 5 feet 10 inches tall, slim built, has brown eyes and carries his hair in dreads.
Police said his dreads are about 24 inches long and he’s believed to be from Deniere Riviere, Dennery.
“Persons are asked to be extremely cautious when approaching the suspect. You are advised to call the police upon sighting him,” police said.
Alexander was recently remanded for possession of two rounds of ammunition and is a suspect in a recent shooting incident, while Alfred was remanded for breaking into a house.
At the time of the escape, the prisoners were on commitment warrants and were to be transferred to the Bordelais Correctional Facility, police said.
