Corozal Police are currently investigating a chopping incident that left six persons injured and four behind bars. On Saturday night at about 9:30 a group of youths were hanging out at the park in the Village of Cristo Rey in the Corozal District, apparently making way too much noise, when Guadencio Che, who lives nearby, approached the group, asked them to stop making noise and then left.
The group of young men then went over to Che’s residence located across from the football field and started to throw stones at his house. At that instance members of the Che family reportedly came out of the residence armed with machetes and attacked the young men inflicting serious chop wounds to all six of them. Eighteen year old Kenroy Choc of Yo Chen Village sustained injuries to his left shoulder, left arm and five chop wounds to the head.
Thirty nine year old Manuel Choc received a cut wound to the back of the head while 20 year old Ezequel Pook received 3 large cut wounds to the head. A 15 year old minor received a large cut wound on the left hand, 20 year old Ezequel Pook received 3 large cut wounds to the head, a 16 year old received a large cut wound to the back of the head while Carlos Lizaraga received a large open cut wound to the head and was transported to the K.H.M.H in a critical condition. Police have since detained 4 members of the Che Family as investigations continue.
