REAL NEWS – A young man is alleged to have cut himself on the forearm multiple times after reportedly being beaten by his siblings, and is being treated for his injuries.
According to reports, a Fifth Avenue, Villa, woman telephoned the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and reported that there had been a wounding incident on Alfred Peters Street at about 4:45 p.m.
As a result, officers left for duty at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre, where they met the woman, who reported that she had been awakened by a sound on her gallery.
When she went to check, she discovered a young man there, unresponsive, with what appeared to be blood on his body.
The woman immediately called the Emergency Medical Service, who came to her home and transported the victim to the hospital.
Reportedly, the young man told the Police that, at about 4:40 p.m., his brother and sister had come into his bedroom and beaten him in the head and about the body with a length of 2 x 4 wood.
He claims that, after the beating, he went to Dredge Bay and cut himself several times on the forearm and then went to Villa for help.
The alleged beating resulted in swelling to several areas on the young man’s head, and he also sustained other wounds about his body, which, the Police observed, were bleeding.
An extensive search was carried out for his siblings; however, they were not found at that time. This matter is still under active police investigation.
