The pair were due to appear in court Monday facing a catalogue of charges. The first suspect, a 21-year-old man from West Bay, was rounded up Thursday 23 March and is now facing charges of robbery, wounding, possession of a restricted weapon, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, possession and consumption of ganja and disorderly conduct at a police station. The second suspect, a 30-year-old man also from West Bay, arrested Friday has been charged with wounding and affray.

The two men are accused of stabbing  a 41-year-old man outside the Jungle Bar & Lounge, on the West Bay Road, just before 11:00 on Friday, 17 March. The victim received a stab wound to his abdomen and injuries to his head, for which he needed emergency surgery, though the injuries were said to be non-life threatening.
