Berbice woman attacked, stabbed by ex-lover

A 28-year-old woman was on Sunday evening attacked and stabbed by her ex-lover at her Fort Ordinance Housing Scheme, East Canje home. The injured woman has been identified as Shanaz Mohamed.
Police stated that on the day in question between 20:30h and 21:00h, the suspect visited the woman’s home and accosted her.
During the commotion, he reportedly held onto her hair, pulled out a knife and stabbed her to the face, neck, right hand and the back of her head. After committing the act, the perpetrator made good his escape.
The injured woman reportedly raised an alarm and neighbours went to her rescue. She was rushed to the New Amsterdam Public Hospital where she was treated and admitted a patient. Her condition is listed as stable. The suspect has since gone into hiding.
This attack came less than two days after the brutal murder of 44-year-old Nicola Wilson at her D’Urban Street, Lodge home on Saturday evening by her partner who accused her of being unfaithful.
The mother of four and the owner of Blue Flame snackette located at Vreed-en-Hoop on the West Bank of Demerara (WBD), was stabbed multiple times to her body and left in a pool of blood on the stairs.
It remains unclear as to what spurred an argument between the two, who shared a relationship for more than 10 years, but the dead woman’s 14-year-old son who witnessed the incident said he heard his mother scream and when he went to investigate, he saw the suspect choking her.
The teenager recalled that the man then whipped out a knife and stabbed Wilson in the region of her heart and face. The teen also related that the suspect oftentimes hit his mother.
The teen reportedly tried to save his mother, but the suspect attempted to harm him too, and he had to retreat.
Meanwhile, after committing the act, the suspect, 50-year-old Lawrence Brummell of Williamstad Street Festival City, North Ruimveldt, Georgetown, reportedly ingested a poisonous substance. He was admitted a patient at the Georgetown Public Hospital where he subsequently died.
