An employee of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GPHC) was stabbed to his head and another man chopped about his body during an altercation at a football match at their home village Beterverwagting, East Coast Demerara.

Sustaining a stab wound to his head was 24-year old David Mc Almont. He is a welder at the LBI Estate.

William Hendricks’ right arm has been almost severed, in addition to other multiple chop wounds.  He was rushed into emergency surgery shortly after 8 PM.

One account was that the men were playing football when an argument ensued and eventually escalated into the wounding.
