Montego Bay, St. James (Mckoy’s News) – Market Vendor Chopped: The police in Montego Bay St James are now in search of a hand-cart man who they say severely chopped a female vendor at the Charles Gordon Market on Thursday morning and then fled the scene after she caught him stealing yam.

The police stated that the wounded woman has since been treated at the Cornwall Regional Hospital and admitted in stable condition.

Reports are that about 11:30 am on Thursday, the female vendor was at her stall outside the Market when she saw the hand cart man stealing yams from a neighboring vendor’s stall.

She raised an alarm and the hand cart man told her that she was an informer before using a machete to chop her to her upper body and then fleeing the scene.
