Lindener Keno Griffith, popularly known as “Tuckie,” who was chopped to his head and arm on Monday after attempting to rescue a woman from her aggressor, has succumbed to his injuries. 

Griffith, 36, who hails from Old Kara Kara, Mackenzie, Linden took his last breath at about 00:15 on Monday at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).

It was reported that the 26-year-old suspect, Rochino Maison, had chopped Griffith after he had intervened and saved a woman whose breast the suspect had grabbed. 

Maison has since been remanded to prison for attempted murder and is expected to be re-charged with murder or manslaughter since Griffith has succumbed.  

According to Griffith’s relatives, his condition had worsened, from the wound, and doctors at the Linden Hospital Complex had decided to transfer him to the GPHC prior to his death. 

According to initial reports, Griffith was standing close by when Maison had grabbed a woman’s breast without her consent. 

The woman then reportedly spit on Maison, who then threw a bucket of water on her. Upon seeing this Griffith, then intervene and Maison had left but returned with a cutlass which he used to chop Griffith to his head. 

However, police stated that “Given the turn of the events, the file is being completed for legal advice.”
