Youth-on-youth violence continues, with police investigating several instances of wounding

The disturbing youth-on-youth violence continues, with several wounding incidents being investigated, two of which involve young people.

A Green Bay woman reportedly took her grandson, of the same address, to the Grays Farm Police Station and complained that he had been stabbed in the chest with a pair of scissors.

Allegedly, the victim said he knows the reported assailant only by the name “Jonathan.”

Reports are that the victim was walking in Tinning Village with his friends when he was attacked and stabbed by the alleged offender with the scissors.

The young man, as a result, sustained a puncture wound to his upper chest and was subsequently issued a police medical form to consult a doctor.

This offence reportedly occurred at about 2:50 p.m. on February 15, and an initial search for the alleged perpetrator was unsuccessful.

Meanwhile, a Bendals Road woman took her 15-year-old son to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) on February 17 and reported that he had been stabbed in the back – also with a pair of scissors.

This offence reportedly occurred at about 2 p.m. on February 16 on High Street.

Reportedly, the Fourth-Form Ottos Comprehensive School student was in the vicinity of a barber shop when he and another youth – whose name he does not know, but who he would be able to identify, if seen  again – got into an altercation.

When he turned and was walking away, the other young man allegedly stabbed him in the back with a pair of small scissors, the youth reports.  However, he claims not to have realized he was wounded until someone told him that he was bleeding from his back.

The Police issued him a medical examination form to consult a doctor and, reportedly, he was also given certain directives.

In yet another incident, a 23-year-old Bendals man was wounded by a fellow villager with a cutlass.

The injured man told the Police he had been driving his car in Bendals when someone whom he identified as “Isham,” of the same address, allegedly used his own car to block the road.

Reports are that the alleged offender then exited his vehicle, armed with a cutlass, which he used to inflict several chops to both hands and the right foot of the victim, who had to be referred to the surgical team at the hospital.

This offence reportedly occurred at about 4:30 p.m. on February 15.

And, finally, in another wounding incident, a 911 operator telephoned the Johnsons Point Police Station and reported a fight in Urlings Village in which someone had been wounded.

Officers, as a result, went to Urlings, where they met and interviewed the victim, who said that he and his brother had gotten into a heated argument, resulting in his brother throwing a bottle at him and wounding him in the head.

The man had to be issued with a Police Medical Examination Form to consult a doctor and was later transported to the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre via the Emergency Medical Service (EMS).

A search was carried out for his brother, of the same address, and he was taken into police custody. He, too, was issued with a Medical Examination Form to consult a doctor.

Reports are that he has been released pending further investigations.

This offence reportedly occurred at about 3 p.m. on February 18.
