Canadian woman stabbed in San Pedro

A Canadian woman was stabbed on San Pedro, Ambergris Caye on Sunday evening. Police say they went to Mora Laguana Resort, located a mile off the North Side of San Pedro, where they saw forty-one year old Christiana Pott, with four stab wounds to the body. ASP Alejandro Cowo explains what occurred on the island in an attempted burglary.

ASP Alejandro Cowo, Officer in Command, Crimes Investigation Branch: “What police has gathered so far is that at about 4AM she was awoken by some noise coming out of her room and when she opened her eyes she realized that someone was standing beside her. As a result she struggled with the male person who at the time was armed with a knife and as a result she received the four stab wounds to her body.”

Pott was admitted into the San Pedro Polyclinic and discharged yesterday. Her injuries were classified as grievous harm.
