A mother and her daughter are now nursing stab wounds to their bodies following a midday attack, which occurred at their Valery, St Michael home.
Forty-eight-year-old Cherral Springer and 23-year-old Jalisa Springer were at home when they were reportedly attacked by a young man, known to both individuals.
Twenty-eight year old Maradona Springer was at home watching football in his bedroom when he heard the screams of his sister and his mother and rushed to their assistance.
In an interview with Barbados TODAY at the entrance of their apartment # 507, Maradona said: “I was lying down and I just heard screams. My mother came and knocked on my bedroom door and I noticed she was bleeding from a wound to right side of her face.
“When I opened the door to our apartment I saw the assailant running down the stairs and I ran after him, but I could not catch him.”
There are unconfirmed reports that Jalisa was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance where she was undergoing emergency surgery. The mother’s injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
