Has he been the victim of an account settlement? This is the question that torments Harry, an entrepreneur of 28 year old of Plaines-Wilhems, who has had a mishap while returning from a religious ceremony at her stepmother’s place in Stanley. He was attacked with a knife by an individual.
The incident occurred last Sunday in the early hours of the morning. The contractor was heading to his car when a man approached him to bludgeon him blows with a sharp weapon. “Il est venu vers moi sans rien dire. Il m’a agressé avec un couteau au niveau de l’abdomen. Je me suis défendu. En voyant que j’opposais de la résistance, l’individu a pris la fuite,” said Harry.
He explains that he then took his car to try to trace the thug. “J’ai fait le trajet jusqu’à Trèfles, mais je ne l’ai pas revu. Je ne le connais pas. Je ne pense pas qu’il voulait me voler, car si c’était le cas, il n’aurait certainement pas pris la fuite alors que j’ai essayé de me défendre,” says Harry. He thinks he was the victim of an account settlement. “J’ai déjà eu des problèmes avec des gens dans le passé, mais je ne me souviens pas trop d’eux,” he continues.
After the attack, Harry complained to the Stanley Police Station. In his testimony, he told investigators that an individual, thin, measuring about 1m78 and wearing a blue jacket, assaulted him. Harry went to the Victoria Hospital in Candos where he received treatment. He was able to return home later. As for his attacker, he is still wanted by police.
