One man was seriously injured and another faces serious charges in the aftermath of a fight reportedly over mangoes on Wednesday.
Reports indicted 30-year-old Karim Samuel needs O-type blood after sustaining several injuries about his body during an alleged altercation with Cortwright DeSilva in Bolans.
A video circulated on social media showed Samuel covered in blood as several woman tried to assist him after the fight.
DeSilva, who turned himself over police hours after the alleged incident, could possibly be charged with serious wounding offences including attempted murder.
The incident followed another altercation, days earlier, in Jennings that left two men injured.
Police PRO Frankie Thomas was quoted on state media saying, “the police will continue to advocate and appeal for conflict resolution programs to be introduced on all levels within society including schools, other learning institutions and communities, in order to see a reduction in this violent criminal behavior”.
