Ladyville youth stabbed multiple times
Sometime either late last night or in the early hours of the morning a teenager from Ladyville was stabbed multiple times. Police are in the middle of their investigations and details are scarce, but we understand that Parrish Copious is currently in critical condition at the K.H.M.H. This morning, News Five visited Copious’ home in Ladyville, but nobody was home and neighbours would tell us only that Police were there this morning processing the scene. A check at the K.H.M.H. confirmed that Copious underwent surgery this morning, and late this afternoon, Rural Executive Officer, Assistant Superintendent Christopher Noble, told us that while he could not say much, they are looking for persons of interest and believe they will have them in custody soon.

“Earlier this morning we learned that a gentleman from the village had been taken to the Military Hospital and then on to the Karl Heusner. He was being attended to there but apparently procedures had to be done on him. We’ve established that an incident did occur in the village and there is one person that is being sought. And we are hoping that by day’s end we will have wrapped up the information to give something comprehensive. However, we know there was a stabbing, and that is from the injuries that we understand he received. We have received the information from him and we’re working on whatever other processes to get it sorted out.”
“We understand that Police were processing the family home very early this morning. Could you give us an idea of what was found there?”
ASP Christopher Noble
“Firstly every home is a family home because a family resides there…but there is a residence that was being processed. As to who resides there…at this stage I cannot reveal that to you. But we have established where an incident occurred last night late. The persons that we are looking for are known to the Police and we established that earlier, so we will be looking out for them.”
News Five understands that one man who is being sought by Police is a known criminal who was shot in Ladyville three weeks ago.
