Stabbed Tucville woman stable

The Tucville woman who was stabbed repeatedly by an ex-partner remains in a stable but critical condition in the Georgetown Public Hospital, a relative has said.

On October 26, Denise Hope was attacked and stabbed several times by her ex-partner while she was walking along Charlotte Street, Lacytown.

Her alleged attacker Godfrey Lammy was arrested after he was found at Sisters Village, West Bank Demerara and remains in custody, a source said.

Meanwhile, the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UCKG) has refused to speak on an allegation that it refused sanctuary to Hope, who had rushed into the building after being stabbed.

According to eyewitnesses, Hope sought refuge in the church but was tossed out and left on the road, bleeding. She subsequently taken to the hospital.

When Stabroek News asked the head pastor of church, Joseph (only name provided) if the accusation was true he refused to speak, saying that the issue was already reported on. “What you are asking you already know because you put it in the newspaper,” he charged.
