A 28-year-old man is now in hospital after being wounded for his body during an argument with another man in Coldingen, East Coast Demerara (ECD) in the early hours of Tuesday.
Travis Bellamy of Bachelor’s Adventure, ECD, is injured. Based on reports received, the victim and the suspect are known to each other and would socialize in the same community.
However, on the day in question, Bellamy was “liming” in Coldingen with several other people when an argument broke out between him and the suspect.
The two men allegedly armed themselves with knives and then a fight ensued when the suspect stabbed the victim to the right side of his abdomen. Upon receiving the stab wound, the victim collapsed en route while the suspect fled the scene.
Bellamy was rushed to the hospital where he was admitted as a patient. Investigations are ongoing.
A few days ago, Marlon Scott, 35, of Onderneeming Sand Pit, Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), was stabbed during an argument with another man. It was reported that the victim and the suspect, who is also from the said village, had a misunderstanding that led to a heated argument.
During the argument, the suspect reportedly pulled a knife out of the middle of his pants and stabbed the victim to his right thumb, right foot, and lower back. At the time of the incident, Scott was in the presence of his sister.
After receiving the stab wounds, the man collapsed, but was picked up and taken to Suddie Hospital where he was admitted as a patient. The suspect was subsequently arrested and charged.
