A teenager was rushed to hospital with stab wounds this evening after an altercation outside a Smith’s restaurant.

A police spokesman said officers received a report of a stabbing outside of D&C Grill at about 7.30pm

“Officers found a 17-year-old male who was reportedly involved in an altercation with another male.

“The 17-year-old is said to have sustained non-life threatening stab wounds during the incident.

“He was attended to at the scene by EMTs and transported by ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for treatment to his injuries.”

The spokesman described the suspect involved in the attack as being a male with a light brown complexion, average build and 5ft 7in tall.

“He wore a black bubble jacket, black long pants and a black helmet,” the spokesman added.

“He made good his escape by running in a westerly direction along Harrington Sound Road and it is believed he left the area on a motorcycle which was parked nearby.”

Police diverted traffic away from the area at Knapton Hill and Devil’s Hole Hill, but reopened the road shortly after 9pm.

Anyone with information about the incident should call 211, or contact the Criminal Investigation Department on 295-0011.
