Tonight twenty five year old Linsford Daniel Rabateau, a resident of #2 Otro Benque Road, is tonight recovering at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital after he was stabbed with an ice pick. Reports are that at about 7:00 on Saturday night, Rabateau along with three other friends were playing checkers at a residence located in the village of Trial Farm in Orange Walk and were consuming alcohol when an altercation broke out between Rabateau and twenty six year old Ruben Perez.
CTV3 News understands that both men were arguing about issues concerning their respective jobs and that is when the situation escalated as Perez inflicted a stab wound to the right side of Rabateau’s chest puncturing his lung. Rabateau was transported to the Northern Regional Hospital where he underwent surgery for the punctured lung. He was then transported to the KHMH where he is currently listed in a stable condition.
Police formally arrested and charged Ruben Perez, Belizean labourer of Trial Farm Village for ‘dangerous harm’ and when he appeared in court this morning he was denied bail and remanded to prison until his next court date scheduled for the 6th of June.
None if the witnesses we spoke with today wanted to give us an interview on or off camera since they claim to be friends with both the accused and the victim.
