Simmons arrested after Ambiance fight
Bar owner Carlton Simmons has been arrested after he and another man were stabbed in a fight in his Ambiance Lounge.
Mr Simmons, 40, and a 32-year-old man were taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital after the incident in the Ewing Street club at 4.15am on Saturday.
Yesterday, police said the younger man was in a stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit.
Mr Simmons, who was treated and released from hospital, was arrested and was in custody yesterday.
Acting Detective Inspector at the Bermuda Police Service Jason Smith wished to highlight an appeal for witnesses to come forward saying the police and the community must work together to help to improve the safety of our citizens.
Mr Simmons opened Ambiance Lounge three years ago. He said it was part of an effort to regenerate the area around Court Street and Ewing Street.
He served as an alderman for the Corporation of Hamilton from May 2012 to May 2015, and also formerly ran the Youth on the Move charity, which aimed to help disaffected young people find work.
Saturday’s fight was Bermuda’s fourth serious stabbing incident in the last fortnight, following the killing of Jahkoby Smith at the West End Sail Boat Club on July 29, a domestic incident in Sandys on August 1 and a stabbing in Sports Locker, Hamilton, on August 2.
