Benjai injured in bottle attack in Guyana

Tuesday, April 18 2017

SOCA artiste Rodney “Benjai” Le Blanc sustained injuries to his head and over 20 stitches after being hit with a bottle at a popular restaurant and bar early Sunday morning in Georgetown, Guyana.

According to reports out of Georgetown, Benjai was attacked outside the Palm Court restaurant and bar, where he had performed earlier, by one of its regular patrons.

Eyewitnesses told Inews Guyana that Benjai had already finished his performance and was preparing to leave the club when the incident occurred.

It was reported that he was outside the club talking with a group of fans when the driver of a car was reversing into them.

One person in the group knocked on the car’s trunk car to alert the driver that he was reversing into them.

The driver, known as “Imran”, reportedly jumped out of the car and confronted Benjai about someone knocking on his car.

When he attempted to calm things down, Imran reportedly started to curse Benjai and threatened to use his firearm. As he tried to talk sense into the driver another man got out of the car with a bottle in his hand and hit Benjai across his face with it.

He fell to the ground and was immediately taken to a private hospital. He sustained two large cuts, one closer to the ear and the other in the area of his jaw bone. He received over 20 stitches.

Newsday understands that Benjai left Guyana yesterday after making a report.

The Guyanese police are investigating the incident.

Newsday was yesterday unable to contact him by phone.
