Mespo man knifed by female neighbour


Still unsure as to why he was stabbed by his neighbour, Mesopotamia resident, Sandford Gurley says he is only “glad” to have survived the ordeal.{{more}}

Hooked up to an intravenous drip, and showing signs of being in pain, Gurley remains a patient at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital (MCMH) after he received stab wounds to his lower abdomen and on his left hand.

According to Gurley, he was stabbed Sunday night by a female neighbour.

“I still don’t know why she try cut out my belly,” the injured man told SEARCHLIGHT on Monday.

In his mid-thirties, the Mesopotamia man said he feels bad about what happened, because he hardly communicates with his neighbour.

“I just feel bad and I ain’t know what else to say.”

He told SEARCHLIGHT that he is not a troublesome person and though not employed regularly, he seeks day to day jobs as a farmer.

“I plant like vegetables and so on and I don’t trouble people like that and I still don’t know why she stab me. Must be because I was in her yard, I don’t know,” he added.

However a resident of the area told SEARCHLIGHT that Gurley was attacked while he tried to enter a window of the woman’s house.

Up to press time, no arrest had been made in relation to the incident, but reports confirm that one person is assisting police with the matter. (AA)
