Police said that the 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call at approximately 12:15 pm today (Monday) reporting an assault at a residence off South Church Street.

    Why are we castigating CNS? The majority of offenses against women are by men that they know or in a relationship with. Because it was NOT a stranger it is somehow less horrible? I think not.

    The headline was appropriate. Sabrina was killed by someone she knew – that’s the norm folks. In terms of this case this man should be charged with attempted murder based on the extent of the injuries that I’ve heard about. Why is it the police always seem to be charging people with the less of the available charges? I know they don’t have a particularly high conviction rate; but all the same they could at least try harder.

    You should all be VERY AFRAID … of the men you have in your lives NOT THE CNS HEADLINE. That’s the truth!

    IT IS A GOOD TITLE CNS.

    Its for our own good, and Unless we are jolted by these titles, we women will relax and the abuse will continue.  Not all men are abusers because some of them get abused by women too, but jealousy is a poison.

      I am a female and I live alone- when I saw this title I was instantly filled with fear and didn’t want to read it.  I am sad this happened to this lady and I am happy this man was arrested.  I must say I felt relieved when I read it and realized it was not a random attack which is quite another matter.

    However this article was posted VIOLENCE  against women is wrong dead beat wrong ,and in our beautiful islands we need to stop covering up and get to the situation on hand, and deal with it. let me start by saying Mothers need to stop been in abusive relationships because of their children and move out and get along with life so that they children won’t see this happening at home and feel that it is ok when they become adults and pass this on to they wife or husband for that fact. alot of time abuse starts at home.

    CNS, this headline is deliberately alarmist, which is very disappointing as a regular reader of your webpage.   This is not the quality journalism which I have come to expect from CNS but is sensationalistic and in poor taste given the current climate.  To deliberately inflame the fears of residents and women at this time when there have been unsolved murders is quite irresponsible, especially as it was not ncessary to use such a sensational headline to draw attention to the article.  To seek to exploit people’s fear in this way is irresponsible.  Shame on you, CNS.

    Come on CNS. I agree with the first two posts, the title is misleading and frightening.

    It is so sad to hear that another woman has been abused.  Happy to hear that the Police arrested him and charged him with the offense.  I also agree that a better title should have been used for this article maybe "Man arrested for abusing girlfriend".

    The title of this article is misleading and very frightening in light of recent events; maybe "Man arrested for Domenstic vVolence" is more appropriate and while no one wants to read about that either, its not as alarming.
