Couple stabbed over occupancy of room

Story PictureIn other crime news, two persons are hospitalized, one of them in critical condition, following a stabbing early this morning. Around six a.m., twenty-two year old Jermaine Chen, his girlfriend, twenty-three year old Myriam Terry and their baby boy were at their apartment located at 20 Dolphin Street when they were stabbed multiple times purportedly by a resident of the same address. According to Terry, her common law husband had just gone to the outside shower to take a bath when he was pounced upon allegedly by one Adrean Gordon. Terry says when she went to Chen’s rescue, she was also attacked. Terry who received three stabs to her neck and head area says they were attacked because they inherited Gordon’s room.
