Police probing disturbance at gas station
Police are carrying out investigations into a fight which occurred on the premises of the Rubis Service Station, Wildey, St Michael.
According to reports, a melee ensued between several persons around 1:20 a.m. on Sunday.
A man said to be in his early 20’s received a stab wound to his right arm and was transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance.
Damage was also sustained to the service station and investigations are continuing.
According to an eyewitness, who was sitting in her car waiting for diesel when the melee unfolded, the fight occurred inside the automart and involved two separate groups of young men.
The young lady explained that she had only stopped for a late night snack, but got much more than she bargained for.
“Out of nowhere a group of young men entered the station and into the mini mart. Shortly after another group entered and from there it was complete chaos and mayhem,” the woman said in a post on her Facebook page.
“I sat in shock and some fear as they fought, pulled goods off the shelf, chased one guy into the road in front of a vehicle, inches away from his head, and proceeded to kick and beat him.
“By this time the one security guard had locked the door, trapping one of them inside and shocked staff and customers watched in disbelief as they continued to wreak havoc outside, throwing and pelting things at each other,” she further described.
