The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) said its officers have charged 29-year-old labourer Andrew Edwards from Gregory Park, St. Catherine, with the offences of Burglary, Larceny and Unlawful Wounding.

It said Edwards reportedly entered a woman’s house about 3:45AM on Sunday (March 22) and stole electronics and a sum of money.

The JCF further claimed: “While he (Edwards) was in the house, he was confronted by the woman. A tussle ensued between them and he used a scissors to stab the woman on her arm. She retaliated and stabbed Edward several times with a knife.

“The accused escaped and was later found in bushes by the police. He was arrested and charged after he was treated at hospital,” the JCF said, adding that a date is being finalized for Edwards to appear in court.
