The condition of a man who was stabbed at Bishop Gap, Marchand, Castries this morning, is improving.
A relative of 29-year-old Kiran Herman of Bishop’s Gap told St. Lucia News Online this afternoon that her cousin’s condition has stabilised. He was initially admitted in critical condition.
Leah Herman said she received a call from the hospital with the good news this afternoon.
Kiran was stabbed by someone well-known to him at about 7:30 this morning
Leah had told SNO that the suspect slapped Keiran’s cousin, Natalie Herman, during a dispute.
Kiran came to his cousin’s aid and parted the fight, Leah added.
The cousin further reported that the suspect left the scene and returned later with a “ratchet” knife and proceeded to stab Kiran in the abdomen and under his arm.
Leah said the stabbing was pre-meditated and she hopes her cousin pulls through.
Kiran, an employee of the Ministry of Infrastructure, is the father of a three-year-old daughter.
The suspect is also well-known to police and was the victim of a shooting in Hospital Road, Castries early 2013.
