Belle Vue man attacked, stabbed by girl, 13
A 23-year-old labourer is nursing serious injuries at the West Demerara Regional Hospital after he was attacked and stabbed by a 13-year-old female relative on Saturday night.
Police in a statement noted that Chetram Chandra, a labourer of Belle Vue, West Bank Demerara, received three cuts to his left side face and both his hands at around 17:45h at his house.
It is alleged that Chandra was in his yard watching a movie on his cell phone when the teenager arrived and reportedly started to ‘cuss’ her 55-year-old grandmother, who is also the mother of the victim. As such, Chandra scolded the teen about her behaviour which caused her to become annoyed.
It is alleged that the teen then took out a surgical blade from her pants pocket and attacked the victim; she then ran away.
The matter was reported and the victim was rushed to the West Demerara Regional Hospital where he was seen, examined and admitted a patient in the male medical ward.
Investigations are in progress.
