Also in the south, police are investigating a weekend stabbing. Police say that bus operator, Kent Chun and his common-law wife, Evangelina Ack got into an argument, which resulted in a stabbing. ASP Fitzroy Yearwood told us more today.
ASP. Fitzroy Yearwood, Public Relations, Belize Police Department: “Sometime around 3pm Toledo Police responded to an incident in the Cool Spot located somewhere in the adjacency zone area where one Kent Chun , a bus driver of Jalacte, was involved in a scuffle involving two other persons a female and a male, I cannot call their names because we do not know which direction our investigation will put us but we know that the incident initially began between two bus operators that allegedly are common law, are in a common law union, where they were fighting and we understand that Justo Martinez went to separate them in that fight. It is alleged that the female broke a bottle and stabbed Martinez in the neck. This is from what the report is giving us. We also gathered that Martinez’ relatives took him to a clinic somewhere on the Guatemalan side of the border where investigators learned that he succumbed to his injuries a little before three yesterday afternoon. The female driver fled the scene in a bus but was later caught by Toledo Police and she is now detained pending this investigation.”
