Screen_Shot_2015-07-02_at_7.48.53_PMOn Monday we told you about an attack suffered by police constable Jason Hall and tonight, he remains at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. The good news is that police have arrested and charged his attacker who was identified yesterday as 28 year old Darren Gillett, a Belize City resident. Yesterday, Gillett appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie and was slapped with a slew of charges including Attempted Murder, Use of Deadly Means of Harm, Dangerous Harm and Robbery. For context, Hall reported to police that the vehicle he was travelling in from Corozal to go to Belize City suffered a blow-out at mile 37 on the Philip Goldson Highway. Reports are that a man, who police believe to be Gillett, assisted Hall in fixing the tire and allegedly shortly after attacked him with a gas tank. Hall’s injuries were classified as severe as he was hit multiple times on the head and face area. Police say Gillett then robbed Hall of his cell phone and $450 dollars and made good his escape in his Mazda vehicle. During the ordeal, there were several persons that witnessed the attack and assisted police in identifying Gillett. A day later, Gillett and the car were located on Pine Street in Orange Walk Town. Family members say they are worried for Hall’s prognosis since he hasn’t been able to eat. Hall has been working at precinct three of the Belize City police department for quite some time now.
