Three men are tonight nursing varying degrees of injuries after they were stabbed last night in Hattieville, Belize District.  28-year-old Enrique Pook was cut to the chest area and received lacerations on his left hand.  35-year-old Christopher Lee Hyde sustained a large cut wound to the left side of his head and 30-year-old Calbert Mejia received a cut wound to the back of his head.  During a police press brief held this morning in Belmopan preliminary information was presented to the media.

Senior Supt.Hilberto Romero, Deputy Head, NCIB: ” Investigations revealed that they were involved in a fight with several persons. Police quickly deployed into the area and several persons have been detained. At least four male persons are admitted in stable conditions at the KHMH and an investigation is being carried out to determine who will be the person who will be charged reference this incident in Hattieville. At some point these persons had some misunderstanding and that is what led to this fight and their receiving the injuries.”

Reporter: Sir that’s one incident you’re talking about that happened there? 

Senior Supt.Hilberto Romero, Deputy Head, NCIB:  “Well one happened earlier and then the police responded and thereafter the second one happened.”

Reporter: So two separate incidents.

Senior Supt.Hilberto Romero, Deputy Head, NCIB: “Two separate incidents.”

Reporter: No connection between the two ?

Senior Supt.Hilberto Romero, Deputy Head, NCIB: “Yes, persons who were involved in the original misunderstanding and then others came and got involved in the fight.”

Police Commissioner Chester Williams also spoke on the case explaining that the stabbing stems from a past rift.

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: The issue in Hattieville last night is one that we’re looking at. Again we have two different groups you know well that Hattieville do have their own issues and we have two different groups in Hattieville that seemingly have an issue with each other and there was some socializing at some house and that eventually spilled over into the incident that occurred where one or two persons were stabbed. Again the police need to be more vigilant in terms of targeting these houses that continue to have social activities. At this time we know that the regulation, the state of emergency regulation did speak to the fact that there should be no social activity of any kind but we still see that to some extent the police have become loose in enforcing certain aspects of the regulations instead they’re chasing behind people who are not wearing masks or step out of a vehicle and forget to put on their masks or step out of a house and forget to put on a mask which is less problematic as opposed to persons who are drinking and so we need to ensure that we streamline that and officers understand more what we need to go after.”

Also injured during the brawl was 42-year-old Roger Trapp.  The men are currently at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.
