The Bermuda Police Service can now confirm that the 32-year-old mother of two, who suffered life threatening injuries during an unprovoked machete attack last Friday night, June 19, at a private residence on Cedar Hill in Warwick, has now been moved from the Intensive Care Unit to a general ward at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.

The group of men responsible for committing this senseless and brutal attack on an unarmed woman remain at large.
