A 58-year-old Fyzabad man is warded in critical condition at the San Fernando General Hospital after being stabbed by a close female relative.
Reports state that Raymond Benjamin of Rosakie Trace was at his home on Thursday evening when the female relative returned to the house at around 8 pm and an argument ensued.
It is alleged that Benjamin struck the female relative on her head with a bottle, following which she took a knife out of her handbag and stabbed him several times in the torso.
The suspect was detained by police and charged with wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm, while Benjamin remains warded in critical condition at hospital.
