SMB stabbing charges made

| 17/11/2008

(CNS): Following a violent incident where a man and a woman were injured in a stabbing which occurred somewhere in the vicinity of Peppers nightclub in the Seven Mile Beach area on Saturday 8 November two men,  Devon Jermaine Anglin (22) and Raziel Jael Omar Jeffers (25)  faced court this morning on a number of charges.

Anglin has been charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, wounding, possession of a restricted weapon by night and possession of an imitation firearm with intent to threaten violence, while Jeffers has been charged with threatening violence.

The charges relate to an incident which reportedly began with shots fired in the vicinity of the Peppers nightclub which were reported to the 911 Emergency Communications Centre at around 9.40pm.

Soon after a second call was received by 911 from a man reporting that a man was behind Grand Pavilion and was suffering from what appeared to be a stab wound. Police and medics were deployed to the scene, but in the interim the injured man was driven by car to the hospital, with a second, female victim.  Police attended the hospital and found that the man had suffered a number of stab wounds to his body. The woman had suffered a stab wound to her hand.

Following investigations by George Town CID, Anglin was arrested in West Bay on Sunday, 9 November on suspicion of possessing an unlicensed firearm, attempted murder and wounding. Raziel Jael Omar Jeffers was arrested the same afternoon on suspicion of attempted murder, possession of an unlicensed firearm and wounding.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling crime stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
