A Portland woman was stabbed and later died following a heated argument with a man at a bar in Port Antonio.

She has been identified as Ebony Harris.

It is reported that sometime on Monday afternoon the deceased and the man got into a heated exchange and a knife was brought into play. 

Several patrons fled the William Street bar to avoid being hurt as the man, who was reportedly in a fit of rage, uttered a barrage of expletives.

The woman was allegedly stabbed repeatedly by the man, who later fled the scene on a bicycle, but not before issuing threats to persons standing outside the bar.  

The woman was rushed to hospital where she succumbed to her injuries later that night.

The police are now appealing to persons who may have witnessed the incident to come forward.

The police are also appealing to the man to turn himself in.
