Assailant in police custody…
An ugly feud which broke out at a Bartica night spot between two men over a slap, ended fatally for a Bagotville man who was stabbed to his abdomen on Friday night.
A police press release stated the dead man, Caesar Bradford, 32, of Bagotville, West Bank Demerara, succumbed to a number of stab wounds on Sunday at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
According to a relative of Bradford, the man was at a bar when he and his girlfriend’s brother began to have an argument. A fight ensued between the two which lead to the assailant stabbing the miner in his stomach.
When Kaieteur News visited the man’s sister, Eunice Bradford, who said that based on reports she received from her dead brother’s girlfriend, the two men were at a bar in St Mary’s, Bartica drinking alcohol when the alleged attacker said something which annoyed Bradford.
The woman added that after her brother became annoyed he then slapped the man’s face. This prompted the brother in law to pull out a knife and stab him several times.
The distressed sister added that he was then rushed to the Bartica Hospital where he was treated before he was transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital on Sunday.
Bradford later succumbed.
The suspect has been arrested and is in police custody assisting with the investigations.
