‘PH’ driver stabbed by robbers in Arima
A 28-year-old “PH” taxi driver remains hospitalised after being stabbed during a botched robbery in Arima, early yesterday morning. Police said, around 12.30 am, Kenny Lopez, of Carib Circular, Calvary Hill, Arima, was plying his car for hire along Prince Street when he picked up two male passengers who asked to be dropped in Maturita. Upon reaching Maturita Road, the two men drew knives and attempted to rob Lopez. Lopez struggled with the robbers for a couple of minutes and was stabbed twice in his chest.
Police said Lopez stoped the vehicle and ran to a friend’s house located nearby. Lopez told investigators that ten minutes later, he and his friend returned to the vehicle and found that his cellphone and a quantity of cash was missing. Lopez was taken to the Arima Health Facility and was transfered to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex in Mt Hope. He was warded in a stable but unsatisfactory condition up to late yesterday. PC Dillon of the Arima Police Station is continuing investigations.
