Passenger stabbed bus conductor to death

The 30-year-old man who was stabbed to death on Wednesday afternoon had been pursuing a passenger who had refused to pay the bus fare when a knife was pulled.

A release from the police yesterday said around 5.30 pm Worrick Charles of 49 Princes Street, Lodge, was the conductor of a minibus which the suspect joined. At the end of the journey at Avenue of the Republic, the suspect refused to pay the fare. There was an exchange of words and the suspect started running. Charles and others gave chase and caught up with him. The assailant then pulled out a knife and stabbed Charles in the chest. Charles died before receiving medical attention. A police patrol arrested the suspect who still had the murder weapon in his possession.

Charles' sister yesterday said that the man had one child and had been the conductor for several buses.
