A 25-year-old man of Murphy Dam, West Bank Berbice is nursing serious injuries at the New Amsterdam Public Hospital following a stabbing incident on Monday night.

The man was taken to the Fort Wellington Public Hospital, where he was seen and examined by a doctor on duty.
He was later transferred to the New Amsterdam Public Hospital, where he is presently receiving treatment. His condition is listed as serious. Checks were made for the suspect but he was not located.
