Young victim: Johnathan Darrell, 27, died on Saturday

A call for witnesses to come forward with information about the fatal stabbing of Johnathan Darrell has been met positively, according to police.

Mr Darrell, 27, died early Saturday morning after being stabbed during a mêlée involving dozens of people outside of the Ice Queen restaurant in Paget.

After the attack, the Bermuda Police Service urged members of the public who were at the Rural Hill Plaza to step forward, pledging to protect witnesses.

Police estimated that there were between 50 and 60 people in the area when the stabbing took place, and it is believed some may have recorded the brawl on their cellphones. A police spokesman said: “We have had very positive responses and are following those lines of inquiries.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Serious Crime Unit on 295-0011 or the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
