Murder accused Steve McGillvery continued to elude capture yesterday, despite calls made by his father, Christopher Lopez, to the police, informing them of his sons whereabouts.
McGillvery, 23, of Pioneer Drive, Sea Lots, escaped prison custody on Wednesday night, while receiving treatment at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex in Mt Hope for injuries he sustained during a brawl at the prison.
Following his escape through a window at the hospital, the police issued a wanted bulletin for McGillvery, noting too that he was armed and dangerous.
Yesterday, however, McGillvery's father first sought to convince him to surrender, before he eventually called the police when it seemed his son had a change of heart.
Lopez's call to the police came after a fist fight between father and son around 5.30 p.m. at Pioneer Drive, which was witnessed by several residents and the Express.
Emotions ran high as father and son cussed and threatened to kill each other over McGillvery's decision not to surrender. They had to be separated by residents as the fight intensified.
Tears welled in McGillvery's eyes as he spoke about his daughter, whom he had not even told goodbye since being charged for murder.
"I can't do this, is best they come and kill me. I cannot provide for her while in jail. Who will care for her?" McGillvery said.
"Light me up? I always provided for you, I am trying to help you surrender to the police so you can live. Forget it then. You crossed the line by threatening me, I am calling the police to come for you now," Lopez said, as he pulled out his cellphone to call the police.
However, it was not until half an hour after Lopez placed the call that two police vehicles came into the area.
By that time, however, McGillvery had already been led through a track by friends.
