16-Year-Old Stabbed At Albouys Point

August 1, 2012

[Updated] Today has been marred by another incident, with a 16-year-old male being stabbed during an altercation at Albouys Point in Hamilton this afternoon [Aug 1]. The teenager is presently being treated at KEMH for a collapsed lung and stab wounds to his back.

A police spokesperson said: “At approximately 4:40pm today a 16 year old male arrived at KEMH with a stab wounds to his back and a collapsed lung.

“Details are sketchy however it appears that their was an altercation in the Albouys Point/ Ferry Terminal area which resulted in the 16 year old’s injuries.

“Police are interested in talking to anyone who may have any information on the altercation that took place today, we are asking you to call police on 295-0011 or the confidential crimestoppers hotline number of 800-8477.”

This incident follows after a robbery this afternoon which saw a female motorcyclist pushed off her bike and robbed, with the two male assailants stealing cash and her motorcycle.

In addition, the day started out with the police investigating a shooting in the parking lot of John Smiths Bay in Smiths Parish late last night.

Officials said they have put a number of security measures in place for the Cup Match holiday, with manpower being increased for the period through a joint effort with the Bermuda Police Service, Reserve Police and Bermuda Regiment.

Update: Bernews understands there was another altercation at the Ferry Terminal area at about 8pm. It appears the incident involved some type of ‘group fight’ with mostly males and at least one female unofficially said to be involved. It appears and no one was seriously injured in this incident.

Update Aug 2: As of 11.45am today, the 16-year-old is listed in stable condition on a surgical ward at King Edward Memorial Hospital.

      • RayMan says:

        Yes we have

        • pepper says:

          That makes me feel so much better..and thank you all for looking out for us, we sure do appreciate your services.

      • MAwesoMe says:

        Explain to me why that is the first thing out of people’s mouths.. For a country who has little to no respect for its battalion when ever BullS**t happens “where is the regiment” is the first thing that is said… How about we start talking about where was the police patrols during this time at a place where there are lots of visitors

    • jo says:

      sadly, These sorts of incidents are nothing new Bermuda these days. All I can say is Bermuda is dead. Long live Bermuda.

  2. Zoey says:

    The ferry terminal is normally always busy so lets see if anyone will come forward on this incident. How dare those pathetic cowards knock the lady off her bike to take what belongs to her…I just don’t know wth this island is coming to. I sure do hope both victoms are doing ok and those fools should think about Karma when doing their nonsense..

    • Exactly! says:

      The Ferry Terminal IS usually busy – - WITH TOURISTS (as well as locals) who probably got to witness just how Bermuda is now days. With 3 or 4 ships on-island right now, there’s a whole lotta tourists hearing about shootings, daylight stabbings and daylight robberies of women. Nice. I sure as heck wouldn’t have good things to say about my vacation and I sure as heck would never return or encourage anyone else to either. Thanks scumbags! Bermuda sux!

    SMH – Morons don’t get tired do they. Just keep this foolishness away from SCC.

    I had to do a double read when I saw “Albouy’s Point”. At first I thought it said “Admirlty Park”. This is in the heart of Hamilton where there are tourists! Where are our cops on the streets…beat down by Albouy’s Point? If not, you had better start.

    • Shaking the Head says:

      Cops on the street? What are you smoking/drinking? There haven’t been cops in the streets in Hamilton for years. Not even in the Birdcage as expected by visitors when they arrive after being enticed here by tourism hyberbole. Same as the “smallest drawbridge in the world” which doesn’t exist because it is bolted shut.
      Makes you wonder if we have any, where they are and what they are doing.

      • Mad Dawg says:

        In the old days (pre 1998) there was usualy a policeman in the birdcage, right near Albouys. Of course, that was back when we wanted to impress tourists with our historical links. Now the ‘politically correct’ view is to downplay the link with the UK. It’s an effort to make us more like the Caribbean. After today, it does seem to be working.

        • Exactly! says:

          So true, so true! We are making Jamaica look like a safe place these days.

          • richard says:

            Have you been to Jamaica Bermudian only go to Jamaica to smoke weed and bring in weed or find some poor soul to bring it in for them. If you go Jamaica for a good time you will have a good time yes there is mad crime down there but I alway have a good time down there and yes even in Kingston. lol Ahhhh my people lol Just so you know in Jamaica people just don’t kill or shoot for NO reason all people from Bermuda killed in Jamaica where into something.

      • Sorry, fella says:

        ? I work downtown, and cross paths with cops (no, not just the traffic wardens!) with some frequency when I’m out for a coffee or to pick up lunch. Perhaps you see what you expect to see?

        • Mad Dawg says:

          I work in town and go out to get lunch every day. I NEVER see foot patrol cops. Never.

        • blerg says:

          what BS. One never sees cops walking the beat. Back in the 90s they were on every block in pairs!

        • Rick Rock says:

          There are no foot patrols. Unless you count the ”patrols”by thugs wearing wifebeater vests, headbands, jeans 6 sizes too big, and home-made tattoos all up their arms and necks. They’re all over the place. No police though.

    One day vicious idiots will meet head on with vicious righteousness ..

  8. Come Correct says:

    Stabbed in the back, bunch of cowards, the whole lot of them, is this how you get street credit these says? Stabbing people in the back? Using a knife to begin with? Robbing defenseless women? Attempting to take someones life because you have a god like feeling of carrying a firearm? With every passing day, every successful assault or robbery your chances of running into one of us increases. It won’t be such a god like feeling when your body is disassembled and your own knife is sticking out of your face, but don’t worry momma will be there to tell everyone what an angel you were. You like robbing women? Easy target? I know one for you, won’t call any names but she’ll kick you around like a little school girl, 6 at a time. One day, its only a matter of time, and I guarentee it will be the last mistake you make…if you’re even capable of making anymore. Consider that your warning. Thugs? Gangsters? Compared to the old days where you could duke it out and go drinking together after, all I see is a bunch of punks carrying weapons afraid to take some licks, no value for life, not even their own. We’re raising a bunch of mice, these aren’t men. That day will come.

  9. WTF says:

    Does anybody know who the 16 year old is yet?

    • SMDHT says:

      Do you really expect someone to answer that on Bernews

  10. Reverend Pastor says:

    Bermuda is officially in the toilet. A few a-holes are ruining the place more than Doc Hollywood did.

  11. Triangle Drifter says:

    Welcome to the New Bermuda. Hope this is what you voted for. Proud of yourselves now? Gonna vote for more?

    • mixitup says:

      yes we cast our ballots just yesterday that this 16yro should be stabbed. Fool.

      • Formidable Deviant says:

        I think we all know what TD is saying, and it is a point that needs to be made. The buck stops with those who have the power to change things – the PLP, and those who elected them. Even by Bermuda’s rocky recent history, this was a bad news day, and on the eve of Cup Match, I fear for more trouble.

  12. BermyGurl says:

    My 7 year old would have been in that area at that time……..God help these a$$es if he gets caught in any crossfire. It won’t be the courts or rival gangs they will be fearing.

    • David Davidson says:

      You let your 7 year old child walk around Albouys by himself/herself?

      • Trinette says:

        No he was with his sitter, but could always get caught in crossfire at a place as busy as the ferry terminal!

  13. Kiddin me says:

    These kids had to learn all,this violence from somewhere?

    • I gotta be me says:

      exactly. the parents should take a good hard look at themselves.

  14. Observer says:

    This reminds me of the Batman movies where crime and thugs have taken over. We need a local Batman cause obviously these fools have no fear of the police or authority!

  15. Razor says:

    Feel the Love! And the knife…and the bullets, and the scrapes from getting pushed off your bike! Had enough yet? Expect whats left of IB to hightail it off the rock in the coming years and tourism to no longer exist.
