Mom, 34, fighting for her life after knife attack

A 34-year-old moth­er of three is now fight­ing for her life as she was vi­cious­ly at­tacked at her En­ter­prise, Ch­agua­nas home on Mon­day. She was stabbed sev­er­al times dur­ing the at­tack.

Po­lice of­fi­cers have now launched a man­hunt for a close male rel­a­tive who is be­lieved to be her at­tack­er.

Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port, at about 8.30 am Emi­ly Roberts was at her home at Crown Trace when she got in­to an ar­gu­ment with a close male rel­a­tive. The ar­gu­ment es­ca­lat­ed in­to a fight, where she was stabbed about ten times about her body, in­clud­ing the back, arms, hands and ab­domen. Po­lice said she was al­so slashed across the ab­domen caus­ing her in­testines to “pop out.”

Roberts man­aged to run out of the house scream­ing for help but col­lapsed on the road­way where she was as­sist­ed by neigh­bours, who called the po­lice. She was tak­en to the Ch­agua­nas Health Fa­cil­i­ty and trans­ferred to the Er­ic Williams Med­ical Sci­ences Com­plex, Mount Hope, where she is ward­ed in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion in the In­ten­sive Care Unit.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the in­ci­dent and the where­abouts of the sus­pect is asked to con­tact the Ch­agua­nas Po­lice Sta­tion, or 555 or 800-TIPS or 482-GARY.
