33-Year-Old Man Fighting for Life After Early Morning Assault

In between 1:30 and 2:00 am on Monday, June 21, a group of men allegedly assaulted a 33-year old man near Somerset Cricket Club in Sandys.

Following the assault, the victim was taken to Eastdale Lane, where he resides, where a car accident occurred. He is now fighting for his life in the Intensive Care Unit at King Edward Memorial Hospital.

“An initial report stated that the victim was directly involved in the road accident and that a car overturned on top of him, but subsequent investigations have revealed that that was not the case, but that the majority of his serious injuries were a direct result of the man being assaulted,” Bermuda Police Service Detective-Sergeant Jason Smith revealed during a press conference on Thursday afternoon.

“He was driven to Eastdale Lane by persons known to him, but [our reports reveal that] the car accident is unrelated to the assault.”
Mr. Smith appealed to anyone who was at the Cricket club early on Monday morning who may have seen or heard any disturbing or suspicious activity to speak up.

“The BPS is appealing to residents on Scott’s Hill Road and Cricket Lane who have CCTV cameras to please make contact with us,” he said. “The BPS is also appealing to the conscience of people who may have filmed any activity with their phone cameras, as that information is invaluable to us.”

Anyone with any information on Monday morning’s assault can call Mr. Smith’s direct line at 717-0864, email him at jsmith2@bps.bm, or leave a tip on the anonymous CrimeStoppers hotline at 800-8477.
