A fight at a bar ended fatally when one man was stabbed and another wounded in Siparia early yesterday morning.
Daryl Seepersad, 22, of Quarry Road, Siparia is the victim. He was stabbed in his chest, abdomen and back. His friend Kendell Blanche, 26, was stabbed in his head and is in serious condition at San Fernando General Hospital.
According to police, Seepersad and his friends were at a bar on Coora Road, at about 2 am, when a fight started. Eyewitnesses said a group of men confronted Seepersad and his friends and an argument started which escalated into a fight during which Seepersad and Blanche were stabbed.
Seepersad was taken to the Siparia District Health Facility where he died while undergoing emergency surgery. Seepersad’s father Jason told Sunday Newsday his son did not deserve to die and he hoped his family receives justice.
He said his son had gone to a birthday party at the bar when the fight started.
“It is just hard to know that as a father that your son left home and now he would never return. It hurts me so much. My boy did not deserve this. No, it is so unfair,” the weeping father said.
He said his son rarely limes but he went out to celebrate his neighbour’s daughter birthday.
“If not for not that birthday party my son would have been home. I know there is nothing that can be done to bring back my son but right now I just want the police to hold the man who killed my son. Don’t allow him to walk free please, he has to pay for what he did.”
Seepersad said his son was a welder and had dreams of improving his skills. “My son was a hardworking and ambitious young man. He was not the type to give any trouble.”
Up to late yesterday, police were questioning several men between the ages of 20-32 who were involved in the fight.
Police are also expected to review video footage at the bar.
An autopsy would be done tomorrow at the Forensic Science Centre, St James.
Homicide Region III police are investigating.
