ROARING CREEK, Cayo District, Mon. July 2, 2018– Two men are recovering at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital after they were stabbed in two separate incidents.
Marlon Escobar, 36, a laborer of San Pedro, was stabbed at Marlin’s Restaurant in San Pedro at about 12:30 Friday morning, and Nelson Twist, 25, a laborer of Roaring Creek, was stabbed in his house on Saturday night.

During the weekly police press brief held this morning at the Raccoon Street Police Station, ACP Joseph Myvette told us that Escobar and his employer, Ahmad Musa, became involved in an argument which led to Musa stabbing him in his back and chest.
Escobar was taken to the San Pedro Polyclinic, where he was given initial treatment and at about 2:30 that morning he was airlifted to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.
Police, who were later informed of the stabbing, went to the San Pedro Polyclinic at about 5:30 Friday morning, where the doctor told them that Escobar had been airlifted to Belize City.
The second stabbing occurred on Saturday night in Roaring Creek. Twist and his sister were at home drinking with others when he became involved in an argument with her.
Police said that during the argument, two men who were at the house intervened and attacked him. One of the men then stabbed Twist about 7 times in his chest and body, and the men then escaped.
Twist was rushed to the Western Regional Hospital and today his condition has been declared serious but stable.
