In Caye Caulker Village, Belize District, there was a stabbing incident which occurred in the wee hours of Saturday morning.  20-year-old, Megan Marie Holland was stabbed to the centre of her chest and had to be transferred to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in Belize City.  Holland was reportedly observed by police officers as being very loud in front of the police barracks on Louisiano Reyes Street at around two o’clock Saturday morning.  The woman had indicated to police that she had just engaged in an argument with one of her cousins.  The officers had advised her to make a report at the station but she opted not to and went home.  Some minutes later, police officers received a report that Holland had collapsed inside her house.  She was taken to the Caye Caulker Health Clinic where she was treated for her injury.  Police noted that at the time of the first encounter with Holland she did not appear to have had any injuries.  Investigators are looking for the cousin believed to have been the assailant.
