On Easter Sunday eighteen year old Luis Fernando Lopez was assaulted on Mahogany Street in the village of Trial Farm while he was on his way home after shopping at a Chinese store. The incident played out at around 8:30 that night and as a result of the attack, Lopez was severely injured and was left abandoned inside a trench.


Lopez was then transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital due to the grave condition that he was in. However, today we can tell you that the teenager remains in a critical state at this point in time and will be traveling to Chetumal tomorrow to seek medical attention.


Earlier this morning we visited the victim’s mother, Laura Lopez, who spoke to us about her son’s condition and since she is unable to cover all the medical expenses, she took the opportunity to ask the public for assistance.

“Mi hijo está bien grave y ya lo llevaron con el huesero y él dice que está quebrado de su quijada y que si yo no lo llevo a Chetumal de urgencia se le va a caer su quijada y entonces yo lo que necesito es a ver si me pueden ayudar y que la gente tenga voluntad y pues tengo mi negocia que no es suficiente yo ya lo tuve una semana en Belice y solo lo costuraron y le pusieron medicamento y mi hijo no puede comer solo cosa liquida y yo no tengo ese dinero para mi hijo se desmaya porque no puede comer y pura cosa liquida come.”


Although reports are that police were able to detain two male persons in connection with the altercation, Lopez says that the mastermind behind the assault is a woman; therefore, she is urging authorities to make an arrest as she believes that nothing is presently being done to address the situation.
