Quiet village shocked by stabbing

Loud wailing sirens in the usually quiet St Lucy district of Alexandria, alerted a long-time resident on Wednesday that something was wrong.
He was right.
A nearby house was surrounded by Royal Barbados Police Force and Barbados Fire Service vehicles as they responded to a home invasion.
This was how the man, who gave his name only as Bentley, described the scene where two men broke into the rented house of Nicole Hinds around 11:30 p.m.
She was stabbed multiple times, and the person who was with her, was also injured. She is now a patient at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in serious condition.
The responding lawmen held one of the suspected assailants, while the other got away. The injured man is currently under police guard at the QEH where he is being treated.
