Tonight Corozal Police are searching for leads after an attack on an elderly man last night. Just after 7:30pm, 70 year old Ignacio Blanco reported to Police that he was on his bicycle on the Consejo Road about two miles out of Corozal Town when he was approached by a dark-skinned person wearing a mask.
Blanco says that he was attacked and sustained a large cut wound to the right arm. A chainsaw he had with him was then stolen before the assailant made good his escape.
Blanco was treated at the Corozal Community Hospital and his injury was classified as wounding. Police are investigating but up to news time nobody has been detained.
