…as Police searches for suspectThe Guyana Police Force is currently hunting a man who allegedly grabbed eight-year-old Anellie Hoyte and forced her into a dark coloured car as she was about to enter the Tuschen Primary School’s compound on Wednesday last. This is being done in conjunction with the Child Care and Protection Agency (CC&PA) as they investigate the living arrangements of the minor.Anellie HoyteShe was found in the care of her father’s great aunt at North East La Penitence, Georgetown on Monday. The minor has since been taken into State custody and according to the head of the CC&PA, Ann Greene, they have since launched an investigation to determine what transpired and the state of care afforded to the minor by her mother.It was reported that a relative abused Hoyte a few years ago but when asked, Greene indicated that the Agency is yet to receive such information, noting that they have only now begun their investigation.The child was abducted at about 09:00h on Wednesday last, reportedly as she was about to enter the school’s compound. She was grabbed from behind by a male and placed in a parked, dark coloured car, which then sped away.Students milling outside of the school witnessed the incident and quickly reported what transpired to a teacher, who then made contact with the child’s mother and the incident was reported to the Leonora Police Station. According to the child, the male took her to the Vreed-en-Hoop junction in a dark coloured car and left her there. She then boarded a route 32 minibus, travelled to Georgetown and was seen by friends of relatives who took her to the North East La Penitence area.Her mother, Alisha Marcus, related that her husband died just over two months ago, and his mother, who resides overseas, has since allegedly been attempting to take her daughter from her. In her attempts to so do, it is alleged that the child’s paternal grandmother made contact with the Welfare Office in Guyana, where she accused Marcus of being an unfit mother.The worried mother of three explained that a group of welfare officers had carried out an investigation of the woman’s allegations and found them to be untrue.However, the grandmother, Mrs Hoyte (only name given), vehemently denied playing a part in the abduction of the minor. She said the child was placed in her care a few years ago after it was discovered that a relative of her mother abused Anellie.She said the issue was reported to the Police and the welfare officers granted her temporary care of the minor but alleges that the child was coerced into moving back with her mother.Mrs Hoyte explained that she was informed that her granddaughter was found wandering the streets at around 20:00h last Wednesday and that was the reason she was taken to North East La Penitence.Investigations are still ongoing as the child remains in State care.
Inter Milan star Fredy Guarin Manchester United and Liverpool target Fredy Guarin might still leave Inter Milan this window for a non-European side.The transfer windows in both Russian and Turkey are still open so sides like Zenit St Petersburg, managed by former Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas, and Galatasaray can still sign the Colombia man.Guarin had hoped to secure a move to England, especially to Louis van Gaal’s side where he could link up with international team-mate Radamel Falcao.But both United and Brendan Rodgers passed on the option to sign the midfielder and he could now secure himself a highly lucrative move to one of the nations that still have until September 6th to complete any transfer deals.Guarin and Villas-Boas worked together at Porto and the former Chelsea boss has kept in close contact with his former player, even guiding him to Inter before he became unsettled at the Serie A side. 1
Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy Jamie Vardy broke Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record to become the first player in Premier League history to score in 11 consecutive games.In true fairytale style, the England international etched his name in the history books at the King Power Stadium, as Leicester City drew 1-1 with Manchester United, leaving supporters applauding his meteoric rise from non-league football.But while reports and headlines have centred upon the goals that he has scored, what may be of more interest – certainly to Claudio Ranieri – is how important his form in the final third has been for his club’s rise to the top of the table.Has he been as key, for example, as Harry Kane was to Tottenham Hotspur last season?talkSPORT has the answer, as we reveal the stats that show how crucial the 28-year-old has been for the Foxes (all stats correct up to 2 December 2015).– Vardy has scored 14 goals and earned the Foxes 14 points– Without him, Leicester City wouldn’t be challenging Manchester City for top spot, rather they would be level with Chelsea on 15 points in 14th place– Vardy, however, isn’t the only player that has been key to their shock rise in the Premier League, as team-mate Riyad Mahrez has earned nine points through his seven goals– Without Vardy and Mahrez’s contributions, Leicester would have just six points this season 1
