Overseas-based man stabbed in Plaisance

An overseas-based Guyanese was up to press time being treated at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation for stab wounds he suffered at the hands of another man. The suspect is still on the run.

While details are sketchy, Stabroek News understands that the man, thirty-four-year-old Jermaine Jonas, was stabbed several times about his body by another man in Plaisance last evening.

Relatives and friends of the man quickly gathered at the hospital after learning of the incident. This newspaper understands that Jonas was stabbed to his neck, hand and shoulder.

According to one relative, “I just hear he holler wah is this and then he start rub he neck and then we see he get stab and we bring he to the hospital. I don’t know wah is the purpose of the attack.”

“This look like a premeditated something”, another relative said. Yet another relative said that he found it strange that the man just “jook the man jus suh.” According to the man, Jonas had on in excess of a million dollars in cash and jewellery on him. “He had on a fat chain and a fat band and in he pocket must be had about $300,000, this ain’t mek sense that the man just jook he jus suh. Why he stab the man, he is a decent citizen.”
