Stabbing Victim tells police who did it

Leon Hinds was stabbed three times on Wednesday night in an area near 88 Shopping Center on Central American Boulevard. The blade caught him in the neck, chest and lung. His family says they know he is far from perfect, but he is their brother and he didn’t deserve the vicious wounds that almost took his life. They were very upset when News Five spoke to them because the people who could provide answers were not speaking. Late this afternoon, Hinds’ brother and sister say that he is awake and happy to be alive. Sonia Hinds Davis also said that the police will soon arrest some suspects.

Sonia Hinds Davis

“Well we spoke about what happened. And we had the police came him and interviewed him as well. We had spoken to his common law at the same time too and she is pretty shaken up.”

“Ok so it seems at least there some communication between you the family and his common law, so that is better.”

Sonia Hinds Davis

“Yes it is better because yesterday we had more questions than answers. And today we have majority of our questions answered.”
