Woman to appear in court for Valentine's Day stabbing

A 30-year-old woman is expected to appear before a Siparia Magistrate on Wednesday charged with stabbing her boyfriend.

The incident took place on Valentine’s Day, at Quinam Beach in Siparia.

The 37-year-old victim, who lives in Rio Claro, suffered multiple injuries, including wounds to his throat.

Police found him bleeding at the beach and rushed him to the Siparia District Health Facility, after which he transferred to the San Fernando General Hospital.

After the victim recovered, an inquiry was launched by Sgt Jaggernath of the Siparia CID, and the suspect from Princes Town was detained.

The victim told the police that they went to the beach to have a Valentine’s Day meal, following which, the woman “attacked him with a knife for no reason”.

She was questioned and charged and is expected to be brought before the courts.

More on this as it becomes available.
