A prisoner was today stabbed at the Georgetown Magistrate Courts, just a few minutes after police locked down the prisoner holding area and instituted a search on all inmates because of another knife-possession matter earlier this morning.

The victim, 18-year-old Timothy Paul Chance, is one of the accused in the murder of Professor Perry Mars. Chance is believed to have been stabbed by two other youths also accused of Professor Mars’s murder at his Prashad Nagar residence.

Timothy Paul Chance, 18; Nikeisha Dover 19; Orin Mc Rae, 18; and two minors, both 16, were all committed by Magistrate Leron Daly today to stand trial at the High Court.

It was after the committal that Chance was attacked by two of his Co-accused and stabbed in the process.

Police today instituted a search on all inmates when 19-year-old Regus Lamazon, in another knife incident, drew the weapon while in altercation with another inmate.

Chance was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance around midday. It is believed he sustained a stab wound to his left torso.

The Criminal Investigations Department is investigating the matter.
