A 28-year-old unemployed man is now in a critical condition after he was stabbed to his abdomen during a fight with another man while they had been “liming” in the same area in the wee hours of Tuesday (today).
The injured man has been identified as Travis Bellamy of Bachelor’s Adventure, East Coast Demerara (ECD), while his assailant is said to be a resident of Coldingen, ECD.

According to a police statement, on the date and time mentioned, Bellamy was liming in the Coldingen village, with several persons, when he and the suspect had “an exchange of words.”

The victim was rushed to hospital where he was seen and examined by a doctor on duty and admitted a patient. He is presently preparing to undergo surgery with his condition listed as critical.
