Police make arrest in attempted murder case

| 26/06/2012

CS tape.jpg(CNS): Officers from the RCIPS have arrested a 40-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with a serious and violent stabbing last week. The man was arrested yesterday evening (Monday 25 June) following a police operation in the Windsor Park area and he is currently in police custody while enquiries continue into the case and as the victim’s condition has been revealed to be critical. The man was assaulted in Hawkins Drive, Windsor Park, in the early hours of Thursday morning at a party. Police are appealing for anyone who was at the house in Windsor Park that morning to contact them.

The officer in charge of the enquiry, Detective Inspector Joseph Wright, said he was disappointed that, despite the number of people who were at the gathering, no one has yet come forward in response to that appeal.

However, officers have been conducting extensive door-to-door enquiries in the area and would ask anyone who has not yet been spoken to by the police to contact them on the following numbers: George Town CID 949-4222, the RCIPS tip-line 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477(TIPS).

The 34-year-old man who was stabbed in the neck was admitted to the Cayman Islands Hospital and it was then that police were alerted to the incident. Enquiries revealed that the victim had sustained the injury while attending the party sometime around 3:15 am.  It is suggested that around 50 people were at the house when the stabbing took place.

The victim remains within the Cayman Islands Hospital and his condition is now described as critical.
