The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) has confirmed that four suspects have been arrested and taken into custody in connection with the murder of a 22-year-old man, whose identity has yet to be officially confirmed by police.
The young man was brutally stabbed to death outside the Rubis Service Station on South Road in Warwick on Sunday (June 14) around 7:15pm.
Police indicated during the initial stages of the ongoing investigation that officers attached to the Serious Crime Unit were looking for more than one suspect, and the car used to flee the area.
Officers also assessed CCTV footage right away as the investigation rapidly progressed.
Moving forward, a spokesman said any decision on charges to be laid, will be made in consultation with the Department of Public Prosecutions.
“We ask that anyone with information on this incident, please contact Acting Detective Chief Inspector Kenten Trott on 717-2345, the main police line 295-0011, 211 or, the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers number, 800-8477,” he added.
Speaking at the scene of the crime on Sunday night, National Security Minister Wayne Caines said: “We fought hard last year, we fought hard and desperately to make sure that we do not have any murders within a year.
“We said to the world that we will continue to strive to work hard. We cannot, we cannot go backwards,” he added.
“I believe that we have the opportunity to stem, to stop and to put an immediate halt to the violence in our community and we all need to work together to do so.”
