Twenty-five year old Michael Ramcharran told police that at about 7:30 PM Thursday, he was in the the vicinity of Beardman Gas Station, Independebce Street, West Bank Demerara when he was attacked by three men one of whom stabbed him.

“He was approached by the three suspects, one of whom told him not to move and to keep quiet. He was then asked “where the gold dey” and he told them that he doesn’t have any gold. The said suspect then pushed his hand in his right side back pocket, pulled out his sewing needle and dealt him one stab to the upper portion of left side shoulder after which he fell to the ground in an unconscious state,” police said.
