A Bocage farmer is nursing injuries to his head, after he was brutally chopped by someone or a group of individuals.
Reports are that Johnny Inglis, left his home to attend to his farm on Sunday, January 3, at about 8:39 a.m., but never returned.
Relatives said they became worried and went around the community, to inquire about his whereabouts.
But after they couldn’t locate him, they formed a search party with the help of neighbours. This also proved unsuccessful.
However, Inglis showed up the next day, with deep chop wounds to his head. Based on the severity of the lacerations, relatives believe that it must have been inflicted on him, with the use of a cutlass.
Inglis was rushed to Victoria Hospital, where he remains a patient. He does not recall what happened.
Police have been on the ground carrying out their investigations.
Relatives are urging anyone with information about this incident to contact the police.
