Arrest made after stabbing on School Road

A 34-year-old George Town man has been arrested on suspicion of stabbing a man earlier this week. Officers were called to the Cayman Islands Hospital shortly after 1 a.m. on Monday after a man with stab wounds to his abdomen had arrived in a private car.

The man told police he was stabbed during an argument at a residence on School Road in George Town. After officers went to the premises and made inquiries, a man attended George Town Police Station around 3:30 a.m., where he was arrested on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm. Police confirmed the arrested man remained in custody Tuesday afternoon.

The victim underwent surgery and remained at the critical care unit at hospital Tuesday, police said.
