– cops still to catch suspect
Female security guard Patricia Rose, who was brutally stabbed six months ago by an ex-boyfriend, has succumbed to her injuries.
Rose, 44, of Vryheid’s Lust, East Coast Demerara passed away at the Georgetown Hospital on Saturday, where she was readmitted in March after suffering a relapse.
Her alleged attacker, who has proclaimed his innocence in telephone interviews with this newspaper, is still at large.
Rose, who was employed by Kanhai’s Security Service, was attacked on November 1, 2008 while on duty at the Georgetown School of Nursing in East Street.
The woman had told Kaieteur News that she was in a guard hut near the front gate when her ex-boyfriend scaled the fence and stabbed her in the stomach, neck, face and right arm before fleeing. She managed to stagger to the back of the building where another female guard was on duty.
The colleague took her to the GPHC where she was admitted.
She was eventually discharged and began attending the Plaisance Health Centre to have her wounds cleaned and dressed.
But the wound to her stomach failed to heal and she was re-admitted to the GPHC last March. Nevertheless, her condition worsened and she eventually became too weak to walk.
Rose had told Kaieteur News that the ex-boyfriend visited her home shortly before the November 1 attack and had threatened to kill her after she spurned his advances.
However, she did not report the threat.
When Kaieteur News contacted the suspect on his mobile phone in March, he again denied being the assailant, while declining suggestions that he surrender.
