At 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, 22-Jul-2021, police attended the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital in response to a report of unlawful wounding. Officers spoke with the victim, a 56-year-old-male who stated he was coming from Somerset heading east on Middle Road, when a motorcycle struck his van from behind and the rider did not stop. As they approached the temporary traffic lights near the junction of St. Mary’s Road and Middle Road Warwick, the vehicle driven by the 56-year-old male came into contact with the same motorcycle, which ended up in the bus layby just west of St. Mary’s Road. The male motorcycle rider got off the bike and both men got into a fight, during which the 56-year-old was allegedly stabbed multiple times about the body with a bladed article. The suspect fled the scene on foot. The victim was able to drive himself to hospital where he was attended to for his injuries which were not considered to be life threatening. The suspect is said to be a black male in his early 20s and approximately 5’ 6” in height. At the time of the incident he was dressed in a grey shirt with a floral design and black pants.
