Mejia was stabbed in the left side of his chest after a long-time issue with Pook
Today, Demoris Pook, 19, a resident of Hattieville, was remanded to the Belize Central Prison after he was charged with the attempted murder of Anthony Mejia.
According to police, Mejia reported that he and Pook had had a long-time animosity between each other, but on Friday, it escalated into something physical. Mejia told police that as he was walking through a yard in Hattieville, he saw Pook and they got into an argument, which turned into a fight.
During the fight, Pook allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed Mejia in the left side of his chest, and managed to cut his own left index finger in the process.
The offense is indictable and will be heard in the Supreme Court, so no plea was taken from Pook. He was not offered any bail either, and was remanded to the Belize Central Prison. He is scheduled to appear back in court on October 17, 2013.
