A man, identified only as ‘Alex’, was fatally stabbed following an attack by several men late on Monday night at Kuru Kururu, Soesdyke-Linden Highway.
Reports are that the victim, who moved to the area about a week ago from the Essequibo Coast, was involved in a confrontation with a taxi driver who was in the company of two other men around 22:30hrs on Monday. The victim was then physically assaulted by the men, one of whom carried a cutlass.
The man with the cutlass attacked the victim and he later fell and one of the men then fatally stabbed the victim; he sustained a stab wound to the neck.
According to a resident, the incident occurred in a neighbour’s yard and when the neighbour heard the commotion, he urged the men to leave the victim. He said the men ignored the man and dragged the victim to the roadside where they continued to hit him with the cutlass.
The incident occurred at Sanville Road Head in Kuru Kururu. The police were subsequently summoned to the scene. Investigations are ongoing.
