A young woman, believed to be around seventeen-years-old, was hacked to death in full public view by a man on Sunday afternoon on Washington Boulevard, Kingston 20.
Reports from the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) Corporate Communications Unit are that around 5:00PM a female was standing on Washington Boulevard, near the entrance of the Cooreville Gardens community, when a man walked up to her and started to chop her with a machete.
The woman, whose identity is at this time unknown, died on the spot while the woman’s attacker, whose identity is being withheld, is in police custody.
An eyewitness to the incident shared the detailed of the horrific ordeal on his social media profile.
“Wow. The world is just so evil. Was just at a crime Scene right now on the Boulevard. A man chop up a little girl, no more than 15 n just stood over her body,” said the man on Facebook.
Police say that while the incident appears “unprovoked” they will deeply investigate the matter.
