Police Sources have confirmed reports of a chopping incident said to have occurred in Greiggs sometime on Wednesday evening.
A young lady was chopped about her face and has seemingly been blinded in at least one eye.
From information garnered through ANN investigations a possible motive for the yet non-fatal wounding is emerging.
An eyewitness account as recorded in what is believed to be a WhatsApp voice note is recorded below:
Unidentified Female: Gyel me ah tell yo de honest truth [name’s victim] nuh trouble dem, me ah go tell yuh how de ting go.

Additionally a screenshot of what appears to be a WhatsApp message sent by the named second attacker has come to our attention.
The screenshot, time stamped at 9:43 p.m., shows a 5 second voice note sent at 2:55 p.m. with a response “she too bright yes” at 3:00 p.m. The designation ‘Today’ follows after which another message “me now chop up d girl dey” is shown as of 9:36 p.m.
The response “yuh lie” also follows at 9:36 p.m. after which follows a seventeen second voice note two seconds later. Then at 9:43 p.m. “[second attacker’s name] oh gosh” is the last message seen in the screenshot.
The two attackers have since been taken into police custody.
