Police: stabbing an ‘attempted robbery’
A man who was stabbed outside his home was the victim of an attempted robbery, police confirmed yesterday.
Officers are continuing investigations and thanked members of the public who had contacted them with information.
The popular bar worker was at first said to be in critical condition, but his condition was listed as “stable” in the intensive care unit at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital yesterday.
The incident happened near Harbour Road in Paget at the junction with Valley Road at about 2.53am on Tuesday.
The 43-year-old was attacked by two men who had followed him on a motorcycle as he travelled home from work in Dockyard.
Officers want to speak to anyone who was travelling in the areas between Dockyard and Harbour Road in the early hours of Tuesday and saw two men on a motorcycle close behind another motorcycle with a single rider.
They also want to hear from people who have seen two men on a bike showing “unusual behaviour” while approaching other road users or heard about the suspects demanding money or belongings such as chains or jewellery.
