A man has been released from the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital after he was stabbed twice in the right side of the back by one of three men during an altercation at about 2:00 Friday morning in Ladyville at Mile 9 on the Philip Goldson Highway.
Samir Sutherland, 19, of Gabourel Lane, Belize City, was rushed to the Belize Defence Force Hospital in Price Barracks, and then to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, and after further treatment, he was declared to be in a stable condition.
Police reported that their initial investigation revealed that Sutherland had attacked a person with a weapon, but failed in the attack.
He returned to the area, however, and became involved in an altercation with a group of men, one of whom stabbed him twice in his back.
Sutherland, however, told police that he wanted no action taken against the men.
He has since been released from the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.
