A 51-year-old electrician is now dead following his attempts to break up a fight between two friends at a bar-b-que in Berbice on Sunday.
Dead is Sylvan Stull of Plot “B”, Herstelling, East Bank Demerara.
Based on information received, Stull was initially out with a group of friends at a horse racing event in Berbice but subsequently left with them to attend a bar-b-que at No 42 Village, Berbice.
However, during this time, two of his colleagues became involved in a heated altercation, and the suspect, identified as a 32-year-old, reportedly drew a weapon.
As Stull attempted to calm the situation and pull the two men apart, he was allegedly stabbed once to his neck by the 32-year-old.
The 51-year-old was pronounced dead at the Mahaicony Hospital, East Coast Demerara while his attacker is presently in police custody, assisting with investigations.
More details to follow in a subsequent report.
