A labourer is now hospitalised after being chopped to the ear with a cutlass by three cutlass-wielding men while he was on his way home.
The victim has been identified as Subraminie Permaul called “Recardo” of Hampshire Village Corentyne, Berbice.
The incident occurred sometime around 22:30 hours on Saturday at Belvedere Village, Corentyne.
Reports are that the victim was heading home on his pedal cycle when he was confronted by three men who were armed with a cutlass.
The three suspects then dealt a chop to his left ear, causing him to receive injuries while they made good of their escape in an unknown direction.
He then went to the Rose Hall Town Police Outpost, where made a report, and was subsequently escorted to the Port Mourant Public Hospital and treated for his injuries by a doctor on duty and later transferred to the New Amsterdam Public Hospital and admitted as a patient.
Meanwhile, police said that checks were made for the suspects, but no one was apprehended. Nevertheless, an investigation is ongoing.
