An altercation between two men in the quiet sleeping Village of Palmar in Orange Walk has left one man in critical condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital and his attacker in police custody. While there are many theories as to what led to the argument, the police’s version was that the victim provoked his attacker. Inspector Selvin Tillett, newly appointed Officer Commanding the Orange Walk Police Station, says officers met the victim at the NRH.

“They saw one Orvin Cantun a Belizean labourer of San Jose Palmar Village who was seen suffering from multiple chopped wounds to the back of his head and a large cut wound to his left elbow and hand, a large cut wound across his mouth and on top of his teeth and on his left side, initial police investigation revealed that whilst at Palmar Village Cantun has disrespected one Alberto Canche who attacked Cantun and inflicted said wound and at this moment Cantun is at the KHMH in a critical condition and Alberto Canche has been arrested and charged for crime of dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm.  What we understand is Canche was passing by and Orvin just start provoke him and he was drinking also.”


Family members say that whatever their “beef” was, Canche did not have to use such force upon their relative. Meanwhile, Cantun is listed in critical condition at the KHMH…We’ll keep monitoring this story!
