On June 23rd a woman who was identified publicly as a lesbian by another woman was stabbed in Half Way Tree, St. Andrew at least 5 times leaving her with a collapsed lung.
She sustained a stab wound to the buttocks, 4 to her left side and was hospitalised for several days.
We have since intervened and offered financial assistance and counseling in her recovery process.
She is recouping at a friend’s home.
When she tried to make a report after the incident took place the officers at the post were resistant and not interested as they claimed it was a lesbian matter and they weren’t getting involved, only a verbal complaint was taken but no official report documented.
We are following this incident closely as we deem it to be homophobic in no uncerain terms.
