Tyesha De Sousa

(Trinidad Guardian)  Twenty-one-year-old Tyesha De Sousa was stabbed to death by a man who chased her down in the heart of Port-of-Spain before killing her on Sunday.

According to police reports, around 3.50 am, De Sousa of Trou Macaque, Laventille, was in a vehicle driven by a 31-year-old man along Charlotte Street, Port-of- Spain, near the Port-of-Spain General Hospital.

Police said the two reportedly got into a heated argument and the vehicle ran off the roadway and crashed into a wall. De Sousa reportedly ran out of the car and the driver, now armed with a knife, chased after her. The woman’s attacker eventually caught up to her and stabbed her several times.

According to reports, a member of the T&T Defence Force who was nearby, went to De Sousa’s assistance and subdued her attacker.

She was later taken to the nearby hospital. The suspect was in custody last evening being interrogated by Homicide Bureau investigators.
