Man begs cops not to charge relative who stabbed him

A 24-year-old man who was stabbed by his 13-year-old rel­a­tive is now beg­ging the po­lice to have le­nien­cy and not lay charges.

The vic­tim, po­lice said, is al­so re­fus­ing to give an of­fi­cial state­ment as to the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the in­ci­dent that took place in Mar­aval on Sun­day.

Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port, the vic­tim told po­lice that he had an al­ter­ca­tion with the teen while in a house. The teen stormed out of the house but re­turned short­ly af­ter armed with a knife and stabbed the vic­tim sev­er­al about the body. The teen then ran away but was lat­er de­tained by po­lice.

The vic­tim was tak­en to the Port-of-Spain Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal where he was treat­ed and ward­ed.

Dur­ing a vis­it by in­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cers, how­ev­er, the vic­tim asked for help for the teenag­er and re­fused to give an of­fi­cial state­ment.
