Sophia man killed in bicycle row, suspect arrested
A 26-year-old man of Block ‘E’ South Sophia, Greater Georgetown was stabbed to death at around 09:00hrs today at the South Sophia, Squatting Area.
Police said that Seon Harry borrowed a bicycle from the suspect, a 31-year-old also of Sophia. Harry reportedly returned the bicycle after midnight which caused a brief but heated exchange of words.
On Thursday morning, the police said Harry, who was armed with a cutlass, met the suspect on a dam and dealt him several chops about his body.
In retaliation, the suspect allegedly whipped out a knife and fatally stabbed Harry.
The suspect, who had to receive medical attention for his injuries, has since been detained and is assisting with investigations.
