A SUSPECTED suicide, a non-fatal stabbing, four ammunition-related arrests, and a firearm discovery all happened this week, according to police.

The suicide victim, a 25-year-old crew member of the Royal Caribbean Cruise's Monarch of the Sea, was observed jumping from the vessel around 5.30am.

The incident took place six miles from the port of Nassau.

Also on Wednesday, an altercation between two men left one man in hospital with multiple stab wounds.

The men were at Apple Street off Wulff Road shortly before 6pm, when they began to argue.

The 18-year-old victim was taken in a private vehicle to the hospital where he is detained in stable condition.

Police say they are following "significant leads" into this incident.

Three men and a juvenile are currently in police custody in connection with the discovery of a quantity of assorted ammunition.

Southern Division police officers executed a search warrant on a home on Quakoo Street around 3.30am, yesterday.

They found the ammunition and detained three men, ages 47, 30, and 19, as well as a 17-year-old boy, for questioning.

In another incident, a shotgun hidden in the bushes off Carmichael Road was discovered by Grove Police Station officers on Wednesday.

"Acting on information," the officers went to Shrimp Road around 10.30pm, where they discovered the weapon.

So far, no one has been taken into custody in connection with the find.

Police say they are actively investigating all these incidents and also wish to notify the public that if a police officer asks for a name or address "while in the execution of his duties", failing to provide this information is a crime. Giving a false name is also a crime.

Conviction can lead to a fine of between $500 and $1,000, or three months in prison.
