The Royal Barbados Police Force is seeking the assistance of the public in investigating the stabbing of a man on Monday.

Lawmen responded to a report of a stabbing incident at the Princess Alice Terminal, Princess Alice Highway, Bridgetown, St Michael around 10 p.m. on Monday.

“On arrival, police discovered a 49-year-old male lying in a pool of blood. That male had sustained lacerations to his right calf, left leg, left hip and right instep. Ambulance personnel also responded and the victim was treated at the scene and later transported by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for further medical attention,” a statement said.

The man and woman ran from the area but were subsequently arrested and taken into custody. They are currently assisting with investigations.
