$60,000 bail for father after stabbing son

PARISH RAHIM, a 59-year-old man of Toni Ravine Road, Lopinot, appeared virtually before Senior Magistrate Brambhanan Dubay at
the Arima Magistrates’ Court today, charged with wounding with intent. He was granted $60,000 bail with a surety.

Around 4.30pm on Sunday 20th June, 2021, the victim and his father were celebrating Father’s day at their home. A disagreement
between the two men started, during which the victim allegedly pushed his father and walked out.

The father allegedly followed him with a knife and stone in his hand.

He then threw the stone, hitting the victim and pushed him to the ground.

The father then allegedly stabbed him on the left side of his body, before he ran off escaping into the nearby bushes.

Relatives contacted the Police and officers of the Arouca Criminal Investigation Department (CID) responded to the incident.

After the arrival of the officers, the victim was taken to the Arima Hospital by relatives and the father surrendered to the police.

He was then arrested and taken to the Arima Police Station, where he was later charged for the offence by PC Scott.
