Victim in stabbing critical

A young man who was stabbed early Sunday in McField Square in George Town remained in critical condition at press time Tuesday, according to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.  

The victim was identified as Ricky Manderson of West Bay in Grand Cayman. A suspect was arrested in connection with the attack, but he had not been charged as of press time, and so the Caymanian Compass is not releasing his name as per standard policy.  

Police got a report around 12.45am Sunday that a man who was stabbed at least three times was taken to Cayman Islands Hospital in George Town in a private vehicle.  

Police were investigating at both the crime scene and the hospital on Sunday.
