“Police responded to that stabbing on Princess Margaret Drive. It was a domestic dispute however the persons involved are not really requesting any police assistance to deal with the situation. I know that police went and dealt with the gentleman that was involved, he was taken to the hospital to receive treatment for his injuries and he up to this moment he has not given a formal complaint as to what exactly happened last night. They were inside an establishment when apparently an argument ensued between the male person and the female and as a result he received a stab wound but as I mentioned he has not made any official report to the Police at this moment. The Police responded there and they took him to the hospital and they issued him with the medico form which is the normal police process.”
The Belize Police Department is stilling investigating other recent murders but have not made significant progress in those cases.
