Police are investigating an incident in Palo Seco on Sunday night where an 18-year-old boy was chopped repeatedly.
The victim told police that at about 7.30 pm he was liming in the gallery of a neighbour’s house along Beach Road with a group of friends, when he was confronted by two men armed with cutlasses.
The victim, on seeing the armed suspects, attempted to flee the scene.
However, the two suspects caught up with the 18-year-old and chopped him several times about his body, including his knees, arms, chest, and head.
The suspects then fled the scene.
