Two Villa youth were yesterday charged for wounding the 15-year-old Nut Grove girl, whom they allegedly stabbed over 40 times, with intent to murder her.
The incident, which led to the duo being charged, occurred Friday night at Red Hill, Picadilly.
Sheldon Aird and Darwin Bynoe, ages 20 and 22, are to appear before a magistrate this week.
The third man police was questioning has been released pending further investigations. Reports indicate he has been very co-operative with the lawmen since he turned himself in to them Sunday morning.
It is alleged the teen left her home Friday evening to run an errand some time around 7:30 pm and was picked up by the accused. She was stabbed repeatedly and left for dead in the bushes at Picadilly.
However, the wounded victim reportedly crawled to the side of the road and two passersby found her bleeding profusely. The good Samaritans summoned paramedics and the teenaged victim was rushed to Mount St John’s Medical Centre.
She remains in the Intensive Care Unit in stable condition. The victim’s name has been withheld for her protection.
In a statement to the press yesterday, police urged that any person with information about the incident or any other offence should contact the Criminal Investigations Department at 462-3913(4), Crime Stoppers at 800 TIPS (8477) or the nearest police station.
