(CNS) Updated: Police have now charged a man with wounding with intent and possession of an offensive weapon in connection with one of two arrests made early Saturday morning following two violent incidents on Shedden Road in George Town. The 31-year-old George Town man was arrested for stabbing a 47-year-old man in the chest and he appeared before magistrates on Sunday after he was charged. Meanwhile, a 27-year-old George Town man was arrested for shooting at a car along Shedden Road in the same area. Although the incidents occurred within less than 20 minutes of each other, police said they do not believe the incidents were linked.

A spokesperson for the RCIPS said the gun in the second incident was fired at around 3:12am in the vicinity of Jacques Scott. A Ford Edge SUV was damaged but no one was physically injured and the 27-year-old remains in police custody.

The man who was stabbed received a serious wound to his chest during the first incident, which happened in the same area on Shedden Road at about 3:31 this morning, police said. He was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital in George Town, where he underwent surgery and is in stable condition. The 31-year-old man arrested for wounding is also in police custody. 

Anyone who has information about either incident or was in the area at the time of the stabbing or the shooting is asked to contact the George Town CID at 949-4222, Detective Inspector Joseph Wright at 949-7710 of the Serious Crime Task Force or Crime Stoppers on 800 8477(TIPS).
