Friday, July 12th. 2019 –

Matthew Smith, 27, is recuperating in the KHMH from a stab wound he suffered under his left armpit around 6:40 last week Thursday night during a dispute with another man over a bicycle. 

Smith, who resides on Plues Street, was on East Collet Canal near the Conch Shell Bay area when he got into an argument with another man over his bicycle that was stolen.  The argument led to a fight, during which Smith was stabbed.   

The Reporter understands that Smith was walking on the street when he saw the other man and asked him about his bicycle.  The man reportedly grew upset and the two got into a heated dispute which led to the fight. 

Assistant Superintendent of Police, Alejandro Cowo told the media on Monday that investigators have detained the suspect and have made several attempts to get Smith to provide details of the incident, but he has refused to do so up to now.  Without Smith’s statement, Police cannot do much to bring a case against the suspect, however.
