“Police responded to a report where they visited the Southern Regional Hospital and observed Eden Pauline Nunez, eighteen years, with a stab wound to the back. Initial investigation reveal that sometime around 1:30 a.m., Eden Nunez was socialising with two of her friends at Island Breeze Restaurant where she accidentally knocked over a drink that was on a table belonging to a female, known to the police. An argument ensued and Eden walked away. When she turned around, she realised that she was being followed by a young lady Crystal who inflicted the stab wound to her. We know that she was rushed to the hospital where she was placed under observation, listed in a stable condition and we have since detained Crystal Smith pending charges of aggravated assault.”
