Cops make arrest in Treasure Island attack

| 31/07/2009

(CNS): Police said this afternoon (Friday 31 July) that they arrested an 18-year-old man last week (24 July) on suspicion of attempted murder following an incident at the Treasure Island complex in West Bay Road. On 26 May a 31 year old male victim sustained a number of stab wounds to his head following an assault on the ground floor of the resort. Police are now calling on anyone who may have any information in connection with the incident to come forward as they continue with their investigations.

 

On the evening of the attack the 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call from the man around 5.25pm. He told operators that he had been attacked and required medical attention when police and medics arrived at the scene they found the man had sustained head injuries which were not life threatening but the man was taken to hospital where he was treated.

 The victim told police officers that he defended himself against the attacker and the offender ran around the front of the building. It is thought that the suspect may have fled in a station wagon.

“We encourage anyone with information on this incident to come forward, no matter how trivial that information may seem,” said Detective Constable Dave Morrison.

Anyone with information on the incident should contact DC Morrison on 521 1045. Callers may also 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.

    Good work – I was concerned that too much resources might be devoted to "gangtsas" killing each other (which is basically a lifestyle choice), such that it might get in the way of protecting those that are the innocent victims of crime.
