Public Urged To Seek Help To Resolve Conflict Situations

Members of the public are being urged not to resort to violence to solve issues confronting them.

The advice comes from Divisional Commander for the North Central Division, Richard Smith.

He made the plea in voice note Tuesday.

It comes on the heels of the murder of a four year old child, Amarah Lalittle.

According to reports at about 10:10 p.m. on Monday, a woman, of Fifth Street, Arouca, went to the Arouca police station to make a report of abuse.

She told the officers that she had been beaten by a man she knew and that the suspect had taken her child hostage.

Her decapaited body was found when officers accompanied the woman to her home.

A 39 year old male relative is in police custody assisting officers in their inquiries.

Officer Smith made a plea for people to seek help in addressing challenges which may arise.

He confirmed counselling is being provided to the affected persons.
