Police have arrested a suspect in connection with the stabbing of a 57-year-old man over the weekend.l

Following a manhunt at the West End, 26-year-old Shiloh Payne was found at a Sandys residence at 6am yesterday and arrested without incident.

Randy Thompson, of Scott's Hill Road, Sandys, was stabbed multiple times following an altercation around 12.30pm on Sunday. He is said to be in stable condition in intensive care at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.

Mr Payne was said to have left the scene of the attack on foot, leading to an extensive police search for him.
