Man charged for stabbing ex-lover

A man who stabbed his ex-lover to her breast, along with her male companion, at Hururu Mission, Upper Berbice River, made his first court appearance on Wednesday at the Linden Magistrate’s Courts.

Gilbert Thomas

Forty-eight-year-old Gilbert Thomas was remanded to prison after he was slapped with two malicious wounding charges committed on Dally Gobin and Leaymond Smith.
It was reported that on the day in question, the victims were imbibing alcohol at Gobin’s house when the suspect showed up without an invitation.
This resulted in a heated argument among them. The argument, however, turned into a scuffle and it was at this time that the suspect whipped out a knife and dealt one blow to Gobin.
He then turned his attention to Smith and stabbed him once before escaping the scene.
The couple was taken to the Kwakwani Hospital where they were treated and referred to the Linden Hospital Complex. There, they were admitted but subsequently discharged.
Thomas was arrested while hiding out at a camp in Hururu Backlands and was subsequently charged.
