Two British visitors received several stab wounds about their bodies after an intruder broke into their St Peter villa last Friday.

Police today confirmed that they were investigating the robbery and stabbing of British Professor Dr James Bridges, 72, and his wife Dr Olga Bridges, 62.

The two were attacked by a masked man after they arrived at a million-dollar villa at Sand Street, St Peter, to spend a two-week holiday.

The intruder got away with a bag containing all their cash and credit cards.

Police public relations officer Inspector David Welch said the wife was still hospitalized at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Reports indicate that she sustained a ruptured diaphragm, ruptured spleen and a broken rib.

What a horrible welcome to Barbados. This is the kind of exposure that we do not need. My heart goes out to Drs. James & Olga Bridges. I pray that they will heal quickly and get to enjoy at least some of their time in Barbados. I urge to RBPF to stay on top of this and to bring the right person(s) to swift justice. I also urge the BTA, Government and people of Barbados to reach out to the Bridges and try to comfort them. What a shame! Nigel D.
