Man Arrested in Relation to Murder

Yesterday, 5 October, RCIPS officers arrested a 24-year-old man of George Town, on suspicion of murder, in relation to the murder of Divonte Alejandro Hernandez, which occurred in George Town on the morning of Friday, 29 September.

The man is being held in custody as investigations continue to locate and apprehend the second man involved in the incident.

"The arrest is a positive result, one that we hope provides some reassurance not only to the grieving family of the victim, but also the public", says Detective Superintendent Peter Lansdown. "However, it is vital we locate and apprehend the second man involved in this tragic incident. The culprit is likely in hiding, which means that members of the community are aiding them to evade the police - this in itself is a crime. If anyone knows anything to do with this incident, and hasn't yet gotten in touch with the police, now is the time to step up, and do the right thing".

Police encourage the community to provide information to the Major Incident Room (MIR) on 649 2930. Police would also request that witnesses make themselves known to police so that appropriate measures can be put in place to ensure their safety, as opposed to remaining anonymous.

Officers were present at the scene of the crime this morning to conduct a witness appeal, speaking with members of the public that frequent the area around the same time the murder occurred, on the one week anniversary of the incident.
