Police have confirmed that a man was stabbed in the stomach during an altercation on a South Shore beach on Friday evening.

The incident took place at about 7.15pm on the Bermuda Day holiday.

Officers responded to a reported disturbance at Horseshoe Bay in Southampton but found that “nothing untoward was encountered”.

In a follow-up investigation shortly after, officers went to a reported disturbance at nearby Chaplin Bay, and again found nothing suspicious.

But last night a police spokesman said: “Detectives later learnt that a 25-year-old man, who had been at Horseshoe Bay Beach earlier Friday evening, attended King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for treatment of a stab wound to his abdomen.

“At last check the injury was not considered life-threatening and the man was listed in stable condition in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.”

Any witnesses to this stabbing incident at Horseshoe Bay Beach on Friday evening, as well as anyone with information about the reported disturbance at Chaplin Bay beach that same day, are asked to call 211 or the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477.
