Jamaican alleged to have stabbed two men to death in Trinidad

The Trinidadian media is reporting that a 25-year-old Jamaican man was taken into police custody on Sunday night after allegedly stabbing two men to death in the twin-island republic.

The stabbings, which reportedly followed an argument, occurred at a service station where the suspect is employed.

Those killed have been identified as 31-year-old Kelon Cruickshank, a musician who went by the stage name ‘Don Kelon’, and his friend, 30-year-old Chris Ragbir, both of Longdenville.

The now deceased men were reportedly at the service station in Montrose when they got involved in an altercation with the Jamaican.

Police said the men were involved in the argument with the attendant, and a scuffle ensued at around 8.45 p.m.

Kelon and Ragbir were said to have returned to their vehicle, but according to the police, the suspect jumped into the vehicle and began stabbing them in their necks and chests.

Kelon attempted to drive away, but the vehicle crashed into a concrete wall a short distance away.

The two men died at the scene.

The police are said to be reviewing surveillance video to assist them in the probe into the incident.
