Cop stabbed in back, neck while trying to make peace
A young Police Constable who tried to make peace between two men who were fighting is now in the hospital nursing stab wounds to the lower neck and lower back.
Police Headquarters in a statement noted that 20-year-old Marcos Richmond was walking home along Quamina Street, Beterverwagting, East Coast Demerara on Thursday at around 19:40h when he saw two men in an altercation.
The Police report said that the Constable approached them in a bid to keep the peace but the 35-year-old suspect became annoyed and told the cop that the altercation is none of his concern.
The Constable then continued his journey home when the same suspect attacked him from behind with a knife and stabbed him twice, the Police reported.
He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital by a family member and is admitted in a serious but stable condition.
The suspect was later arrested and is in Police custody assisting with the investigation.
