Martin Drive, George Town

(CNS): A George Town man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing outside a bar in the capital in the early hours of Sunday morning. Police said that the injured man was found lying on the street behind the Globe Bar on Martin Drive in George Town at around 1:45am yesterday (13 September). When the police arrived at the scene, they found the victim had been stabbed in the chest and he was taken to the George Town hospital.  

The victim is currently in the intensive care unit but is described as being in stable condition. Some two hours later, detectives and uniform officers arrested a 63-year-old man on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm.  The man remains in police custody.
The victim was discovered  in the same area where the body of 20-year-old Jason Powery was found in July. Powery was the most recent murder victim in gang and gun related violence. Brothers Osbourne Douglas (28) and Justin Ramoon (23), from George Town, have been charged with the murder and are expected to stand trial next January.
