A 17 year old boy is now recovering from serious injuries after he was allegedly stabbed, burnt and left to die by his peers.
According to a report from the Jamaica Observer:
Two teens charged in connection with the attempted murder of one of their peers, who was left to die in a cave, were remanded when they appeared in the Mandeville Resident Magistrate’s Court yesterday.
Anthony Forbes, 18, is before the Court on a charge of attempted murder, while a 16-year-old (name withheld because he is a minor) is charged with conspiracy to murder.
The two are to return to Court on March 12.
The police have confirmed that they are searching for a third teenager, a 17-year-old boy, alleged to have been involved in the crime.
Robert Cleary, father of the injured 17-year-old who is recovering in hospital under police protection, told the Jamaica Observer that he believes the teenager on the run is extremely dangerous.
According to the report: Patrick Brown, who knows the injured boy and some of his friends, said that it was through his prodding that he got information from a close friend of one of the accused in order that the injured teenager could be found.
Brown said the victim claimed from his hospital bed that the accused teenagers first tried to drown him in water at the cave.
When that method was not effective he was cut, stabbed and set afire with the use of kerosene oil and a tyre.
Cleary said that his son related accounts of the student who is on the run, cutting his hand and
drinking his own blood as the attack unfolded.
The injured teenager reportedly “formed dead” and the boys did not stay to watch the tyre burn out.
