Cashew Hill man in custody after Wednesday’s daylight stabbing on Redcliffe Street; victim’s condition said to be stable

Police are investigating a highly publicized incident in which a
young man was stabbed in the side by another man on lower
Redcliffe Street.

The offence took place since Wednesday, June 21, at about 4:15 p.m.,
and shocked both onlookers and residents who viewed video clips
of the incident.

Officers from the Criminal Investigations Department, including
men from the B Division, and the Traffic Department responded to
the report made by a 911 emergency operator.

They met the victim in the Emergency Room at the hospital being
attended to by various doctors. 

Reports say the young man had a stab wound to his right side, but
was in stable condition, and his injury was not life threatening.
However, he was kept for observation. 

According to other reports, the young man had been sitting at
Mishoo’s Fast Food Restaurant in Heritage Quay when an unknown
male approached him from the rear and stabbed him with a white-
handled knife. 

Unconfirmed reports claim the alleged offender licked the bloodied
knife after the deed, fuelling speculation that the stabbing was part
of a satanic ritual – or that the man is afflicted by a mental illness.

Apparently, the Police recovered two knives at the scene, and a 31-
year-old Cashew Hill man was arrested on suspicion of wounding
and taken into custody.
