Christmas Day stabbing in Orange Walk

Two residents of Carmelita Village, Orange Walk, have been hospitalized for stab wounds sustained over the holidays.

Minor Jordon, 22, a Guatemalan laborer of Carmelita Village, received a large cut wound on his left arm and is recovering at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.

Meanwhile, Enrique Ocampo, 28, also of Carmelita Village, suffered two stab wounds to the left side of his back and is recovering at the Northern Regional Hospital.

Both Jordon and Ocampo are said to be in stable condition.

A police report on the incident states that at about 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 25, 2013, while Minor Jordan was socializing with some friends at the residence of Davis Fernandez, he was approached by Enrique Ocampo.

According to police, their initial investigations revealed that Ocampo inflicted the chop wounds with a machete. While Ocampo attempted to flee the area, he reportedly got into an argument with another man, who is alleged to have stabbed Ocampo.

Police said that at about 10:30 on Christmas night, after having received the report of the stabbings, they went to the Northern Regional Hospital’s emergency room, where they saw Jordon with a chop wound on his arm and Ocampo with stab wounds to his back.

Both men were taken to the Northern Regional Hospital, but shortly afterwards Jordan was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for further treatment.

Police said that they are seeking one man for questioning in connection with the incident.
