Man slashes Grays Farm woman’s throat after fruitless attempt at robbing her; investigations are underway

Investigations have been launched into an incident during which a Parliament Street, Grays Farm, woman had her throat slashed by an unknown person.

The early-morning offense reportedly occurred late last week on King Obstinate Drive.

Reportedly, the woman was walking from east to west. When she reached the vicinity of the St. John’s Magistrates’ Court, a man who was dressed entirely in black approached and grabbed her from behind.

Reports say he then placed a sharp object to her throat and made demands for money. When he did not get any cash, he used the implement to cut her throat.

The victim was subsequently transported to the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre by ambulance for treatment.

The perpetrator is described as slim in build, between 5’ 8” and 6‘ tall, and was wearing a mask that covered his face; only his eyes reportedly were showing.

Further reports are that the woman’s attacker spoke with an Antiguan accent.

A search was carried out for the man in the surrounding area, but without success.
