Upon his return to Essequibo on Tuesday just after 18:00hrs, he went to the apartment where he met the woman who appeared to be under the influence while drinking a beverage.
The married man told police detectives that the woman indicated to him that she and the neighbor, a 48-year-old female were imbibing for the past three days.
