Woman stabbed after she ended abusive relationship

Injured: Karen Francis

A woman’s decision to end an abusive relationship resulted in her being attacked on Sunday evening and stabbed several times about her body by her partner of three years.

Thirty-eight-year-old Karen Francis, a mother of three, sustained stab wounds to her hands, abdomen and back. She is currently a patient at the Georgetown Public Hospital in stable condition.

The suspect, who she identified as Clive Campbell called “Junior”, made good his escape after the incident.

Contacted, Commander of ‘A’ Division Marlon Chapman confirmed that a report had been made to the police, but said that the suspect had not yet been apprehended.

Francis, from her hospital bed yesterday, explained to Stabroek News that she lived with Campbell for about three years, a period during which he was abusive.

She went with her children and while she was there the man indicated that he wanted the relationship to continue. “…I tell he no, we not together anymore and he get vex and start stab me up with a knife,” Francis explained.

The injured woman said the attack was witnessed by her three children.
