DHA PhotoA 31-year-old Turkish man was arrested June 27 in the stabbing of the 17-year-old Dwaine Ward, who was left severely wounded in a garden in Turkey’s Marmaris.
The suspect, identified as A.D., was one of two suspects the police have been searching for since Ward, a British national, was discovered in a garden two days previous, wounded and naked.
İ.A., the second suspect, had been detained soon after in the Anatolian province of Konya and is on the way to court, according to report.
A.D. was detained, sent to court and arrested on charges of “looting, injuring intentionally and depriving of freedom.”
Ward had been stabbed 20 times, with four of the cuts inflicting deep wounds in his body. He was taken to hospital immediately, where he was placed in the intensive care unit. His status has been improving, according to doctors.
