Man saved by police from being chopped up

The victim, however, does not want to press charges

BELIZE CITY, Mon. Aug. 13, 2018– A Hispanic man was saved from further injury from a machete-wielding man who was attacking him by a policeman who was in the area and saw the attack. The officer fired a warning shot, causing the machete-man to stop. He was then arrested.

The incident occurred at about 5:00 Saturday evening near Benny’s apartment complex on the Philip Goldson Highway.

Police reported that two men became involved in an altercation that led to a fight. One of the men pulled out a machete and chopped the other man on his right arm, and was about to chop him again when the police officer fired the warning shot.

The injured man was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and later released. Information to us today is that the victim does not want to press charges. His assailant was therefore released from custody.
