CNC3 s Crime Watch host Ian
Alleyne this week praised Jodel Noel,
a Form Four student at Brazil High
School, for his heroic actions in saving
a schoolgirl from an alleged school
bully who was armed with a cutlass.
During an interview at the boy s
home on Thursday, Noel told Alleyne
that he was chopped above the left
ankle and received 85 stitches.
The boy recounted that on Tuesday,
a Form Three male student, a known
bully, attempted to take the girl s money
but upon her defending herself a fight
broke out between the two and the boy
subsequently threatened to kill her the
Alleyne was told shortly before noon
that day the bully told a student he
had a cutlass and was going to use it
to kill the girl.
Noel told Alleyne that he had to
intervene in defence of the girl. He said
there was a struggle when the bully
took out the cutlass and chopped him
on the left foot just above the ankle.
Alleyne called on the Ministry of
Education to clamp down on school
violence before it got worse. He also
called for justice on Noel s behalf and
said he hoped that the police investi-
gated the incident thoroughly and took
the necessary action.

On Monday, Alleyne also
highlighted the case of missing
40-year-old Rienzi Ramnarine of
Rio Claro. Alleyne was told by a
relative that Ramnarine, who
lived at San Pedro, Poole, was
last seen last Saturday leaving
his home in his car---a gold
Almera, PCB 2596.
Almost 24 hours after the
relative pleaded with Alleyne to
help them find Ramnarine,
Alleyne, on Tuesday night,
received information that a body
was found burnt in a car that
was set on fire.
Alleyne went to Mt Moriah
Road, Cunupia, shortly after 7
pm on Tuesday where he
confirmed that the vehicle
belonged to Ramnarine. Further
tests are being carried out to
determine whether the body
found in the car was Ramnarine,
as it was burnt beyond
Alleyne also began
investigations into the murder of
Terrence "Biggs" Lewis of Myers
Lane, Longdenville, who was
fatally shot while at Tobago
Road, Enterprise, on Tuesday
An investigation has also been
launched into the murder of
Kareem Modeste, 28, of Dow
Village, South Oropouche. He
was shot dead outside his home
last Saturday night.
Anyone with information is
kindly asked to contact Alleyne
Alleyne, also this week,
reported exclusively the alleged
abduction of 24-year-old Sunita
Resa Singh and her 11-month-old
daughter, Chelsea Singh.
Alleyne was visited by
concerned close friends of Singh's
who told him that Singh and her
baby were snatched from their
Curepe home by the woman's
husband and taken away.
They claimed that Singh was in
an abusive relationship and was
trying to obtain a protection order
from the court. She was due to
appear before a magistrate on
That story was highlighted on
Crime Watch on Tuesday and,
within one hour of airing it,
Alleyne was able to receive critical
information as to where Singh
and her baby were being kept.
Alleyne went to the apartment
where he rescued both mother
Singh pleaded with Alleyne for
help to escape from her abusive
relationship and claimed she was
chopped a few years ago. She
also claimed she was repeatedly
beaten and she wanted out.
Singh told Alleyne that in 2012
she had taken out a protection
order against her husband and
that he had breached it. She said
she was fed up of being in an
abusive relationship and had
made up her mind to put all fears
aside and take a stand against
him to save her own life.
On Wednesday, Singh was able
to make it to the Tunapuna
Magistrates Court. However,
there was no magistrate and the
matter was adjourned to next
Alleyne questioned the delay in
the court hearing, and wondered
if this was the justice that
women, who are faced with
serious domestic violence
situations, are met with in the
On Thursday's show, Alleyne
was able to locate Singh's
husband, Vishal "Rocky" Singh,
who was said to be in hiding.
He denied abducting Singh and
their daughter and told Alleyne
that she willingly left with him
that day (last Sunday) and was
staying with him at an apartment.
He said she willingly accompanied
him on a shopping trip to Princes
Town last Monday.
Singh, who was also invited to
the set, told Alleyne that she was
forced to do so and added that
she was very afraid of her
husband and for her life.
In the end, it was agreed that
Singh wanted out of her marriage
with Vishal. Vishal agreed that he
was going to leave her alone and
not harm her.
