A Dangriga woman’s neighbour entered her house at about 3:00 o’clock yesterday morning and inflicted several chop wounds to her for reasons that are not yet clear to police.
Lanesha Balthazar, 19, of the Wagierale area, was chopped on the left and right hands, on the head, and on the left side of the back; she also had her left thumb severed. Balthazar also complained of not having any sensation in her left hand.
Balthazar told police that she was sleeping when her neighbor came to her house, and when she got up to see what he wanted, he began chopping her for reasons unknown to her. After chopping her repeatedly, he left.
Her neighbor, a 20-year-old plumber, has been arrested.
