Suspect on the run after chopping neighbour

A 45-year-old man is currently warded in a serious condition at the San Fernando General Hospital after he was attacked by his neighbour.

The victim, Simon Gusman, of Siparia, was at home on Christmas Eve when he saw his neighbour outside his home.

The assailant, police was told, was well known to the victim as they had an ongoing disagreement.

There was an exchange of words, following which the assailant left the scene.

He returned with a cutlass and chopped Gusman to his chest, and arms.

The assailant then fled the scene on foot.

The police were notified and the wounded man was rushed for medical treatment, where he remained up to this afternoon.

The suspect has yet to be apprehended.
