  “The officers, however, spoke to a witness with initials B.S.G. who said he was with the victim when the incident took place on Palm Tree Drive. He told officers that the victim was attacked by one of two men that approached them.

  “The assailant stabbed the victim several times with a sharp pointed object. He did also mention that he could not identify these two men because they were dressed in dark clothing. After committing the act both men fled the scene.”

  After doctors managed to stabilise the victim, he was transported to the Intensive Care Unit where he will remain for observation and further treatment.
