Policeman Arrested For Stabbings

Police Stabbing

Exactly a week after a mother and her teen daughter were allegedly murdered by the mother’s boyfriend and just two days after Crisis Centre officials revealed that more than 1,200 women are abused annually, another mother and her child are the latest reported victims of a violent crime, this after a stabbing incident last night in which a very close family member, a seasoned police officer, is believed to be responsible.

A police constable with 24 years on the force was arrested Wednesday night and questioned in connection to a stabbing incident that has reportedly left the female relative and her teen son in hospital.

The Journal understands that the police officer is attached to the Royal Bahamas Police Force Internal Securities Division.

According to police, it was shortly after nine last evening that officers received a report that 39-year-old Alfreda Stubbs and her 16-year-old son had been stabbed.

Police officials were tightlipped on the scene and refused to give any comments on the incident.

But investigators were seen dusting a small vehicle that was ditched in bushes on a vacant lot for clues.

The car was a silver Toyota Sienta and was parked with its rear facing street and sitting deep in bushes just off the main road Sea Breeze Road.

Stubbs and her son are reportedly detained in serious condition.

Sources said the police constable was been remanded to the Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre for evaluation.

Just last Wednesday, 35-year-old mother Vera Berry and her 14-year-old daughter Indiana Forbes were shot dead in their Woodes Alley apartment.

The mother’s boyfriend 32-year-old Jason Ferguson, who sustained what is believed to be a self inflicted gunshot wound to the leg, was charged last week for the double homicide.

Officials said although 1,200 cases of abuse against women are reported, they believe the number is much higher than what is being reported.

An estimated 500 to 600 children are also said to suffer abuse.

Investigations into this latest incident are ongoing.
