The infamous Castro brothers, Wasani and Jafari are tonight back on the media spotlight as they are being sought by police for their possible involvement in an aggravated assault which occurred over the weekend in San Pedro.
The incident we understand played out on Sunday night and has left well known San Ignacio basketball player, twenty one year old, Kevin Brown with serious head and body injuries after he was beaten up and stuck across the head with a fire extinguisher. Police say Brown was at a Resort with a group of friends when a dispute arose over a piece of jewelry. He is said to have been attacked by males other than his friends who kicked and then struck him with the fire extinguisher, knocking him unconscious. Brown’s injuries were so severe that he had to be airlifted from San Pedro to the KHMH where he reportedly slipped into a coma. Brown, we understand is today recovering at home from his injuries.
While it had been wildly speculated since Sunday that, politically affiliated, individuals were wanted for questioning in relation to this incident, it was not until today that police released the names of Wasani and Jafari Castro, the sons of Minister Castro, for their possible involvement in the aggravated assault of Brown. Police reports indicate however, that they have not been able to locate the Castro boys since Sunday.
This is not the first time that the Castro brothers find themselves at the wrong end of the law however, as viewers may remember that back in the month of June the Castro boys had run-ins with both Belize City Police and Orange Walk Customs for driving an unlicensed vehicle, assaulting a police officer and for smuggling over eighty cases of Mexican beer into the country.
