Serial arsonist still terrorizing Bath Settlement family
After almost losing their home to a serial arsonist last Friday night, a family at Bath Settlement, West Coast Berbice is still being terrorized by the man who set another fire behind their home on Monday.
Pulmattie ‘Veera’ Etwaru, 66, told this newspaper that on Monday night they barely saw the man hiding on a jamoon tree in her neighbour’s yard and after an alarm was raised he hurriedly jumped off.
He then set a fire on the dam behind her home and when the police arrived he had already disappeared.
Yesterday, a resident related to the family members that he had seen the man around 7 pm on Monday taking some items into the cemetery where there is overgrown vegetation.
They then decided to check yesterday afternoon and were terrified when they found a jar of gasoline, a new funnel, old newspapers, a hose, matches and cigarette lighters.
