The police are looking for a man who stabbed his ex-wife about seven times about her body with a pair of scissors before hitting her in the head with a piece of wood this morning.
The victim has been identified as 24-year-old Unika Stewart, a mother of three of Cow Pen Street, Bagotstown, East Bank Demerara (EBD). She is currently hospitalized at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC). The attacker who has been identified as the father of the victim’s children is on the run.
The police recovered a pair of scissors which was used to attack the 24-year-old woman. A wood which the attacker used to hit the victim in the head was also recovered.
According to information received, after a prolonged period of domestic abuse, the woman decided to end her relationship with the suspect and moved into her own quarters—this was about seven months ago.
The Guyana Standard was told that the suspect did not take the separation easy. He would frequently visit the victim’s home and plead with her to return to their matrimonial domicile.
This morning, however, the suspect reportedly went over to Stewart’s home and demanded that she meet with him but the woman refused.
According to information received, the victim then decided to go to the suspect’s home to complain to his family about the constant harassment. Moments later, the 24-year-old woman was attacked not far from the suspect’s home.
The investigation into this matter is ongoing.
