Man stabbed at gas station

A man has been hospitalised in serious but stable condition after an early morning stabbing at a service station on Monday.

It is the second violent incident at a service station in recent days.

On Friday, police reported that a man was assaulted at a service station on Shamrock Road, near Selkirk Drive, during an altercation with another man. The man in that incident was hospitalised with a dislocated shoulder, among other injuries.

In Monday’s incident, police said, shortly before 5am officers responded to a report of a stabbing at a service station on Walkers Road, near the intersection of Boilers Road.

A man at the location was approached by another man who stabbed him and then left in a vehicle.

The injured man was transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital for treatment.

The suspect is described as light in complexion, and was wearing a blue shirt and black pants at the time.
