Woman stabbed in restaurant restroom

| 08/09/2008

(CNS): Police said they have arrested a 26-year-old woman on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm after a 37-year-old woman received a serious stab wound on Friday night 5 September in the restrooms at the Cracked Conch restaurant in West Bay. The 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call at 11:20 pm from a member of the public reporting that a woman had been stabbed.

Police and medics responded and found that the victim had received a serious stab wound to her back. She was taken to hospital for treatment where she remains in a serious but stable condition. Investigations have revealed that, shortly before the 911 call was made, the woman was stabbed in the downstairs bathroom of the restaurant, which is accessed from the outside.

Police say therewas a function taking place within the upstairs restaurant at the time, which appears unconnected to the incident. Anyone who was in the restaurant at the time of the incident who may have seen something important is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Winsome Prendergast on 916-5241 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477.
