Younger brother, demanding food, attempts to stab sister with fork

George Rangel Pech, 21, of San Roman, Corozal, has been released on bail of $2,000 after being charged with aggravated assault in the Corozal Magistrate’s Court today. He was ordered to return to court on Friday, November 29.

Police say that Pech pulled out a large kitchen fork and attempted to stab his sister in the stomach. The incident occurred about 6:30 Monday evening in Pech’s home in San Roman, Corozal.

The sister told police that she was at home when her younger brother, Pech, who was visibly under the influence of alchohol, approached her and demanded food.

She said that she ignored him and he went into the kitchen, took a cook’s fork and tried to stab her. She said she managed to escape from him and ran into her room, locked herself in, and called police.

The sister said that this was the first time Pech has attempted to harm her while under the influence of alcohol.
