Police today confirmed the early morning assault that occurred on Cricket Lane in Sandys.
Police say the incident occurred around 2:50am Sunday, July 8th
where police and first responders found a 34-year-old Sandys Parish man, who was attacked by several men brandishing blunt objects at the main gate of Somerset Cricket Club.
A spokesman said: “He was transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance and at last check this morning (July 9th) was recovering in stable condition on a general ward.”
But he added: “Detectives conducting inquiries regarding the circumstances of this incident have limited leads to go on at this stage but continue their efforts and appeal for any witnesses or persons with relevant information to call the Criminal Investigation Department on 247-1744 or the independent and anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477.
On another disturbance, at the opposite end of the island, police are investigating a reported incident at St David’s Cricket Club that occurred around 1:15am this morning.
A spokesman said: “It appears that a function was being held at the premises when an altercation took place in the parking lot involving a group of men, some said to be brandishing bladed articles.
“Two men believed to have been hurt in the incident – thought to be a 36 year old man and a 23 year old man – attended the hospital for treatment and were later discharged.
“Police officers at the scene shortly after the incident occurred were only able to ascertain limited information from those in attendance, as the majority were uncooperative.”
Detectives are now appealing for any witnesses to contact the Criminal Investigation Department on 247-1744 or the independent and anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477.
