The Single Father’s Association is urging men to use emotional intelligence when dealing with conflict.
The advice follows a dispute between 2 men, which left them hospitalised with chop wounds.
The incident occurred near the home of a woman known to both men.
Reports say at around 8.30am on Friday, a 39-year-old of Sangre Chiquito was near the Manzanilla residence of his former common-law wife when he had an altercation with a 36-year-old man.
Both men left and while the 39-year-old was walking along the Eastern Main Road, he alleged the other man struck him with a blade.
There was reportedly a struggle and both men dealt each other chop wounds about their bodies.
Speaking with Newscenter 5 yesterday, President of the association Rondell Feeles calls on men to exercise emotional intelligence.
Mr. Feeles believes during this time of COVID-19 people’s emotions and anger may flare.
As such he is calling on men to be temperate.
Reports say both men in the incident were taken to hospital.
The 39-year-old suffered injuries to his abdomen, left shoulder and head.
