16-year-old stabbed by 17-year-old

Kenny Perez, 16, of Orange Walk, is recovering at the Orange Walk Hospital after he was stabbed in his abdomen and the right forearm at about 1:30 yesterday afternoon by another youth, 17, during a fight on San Felipe Street, in Orange Walk Town.

The 17-year-old has been detained by police and will be charged with grievous dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm.

Perez told police that he and two of his friends were walking on the street when the 17-year-old, whom he knows, rode up on a bicycle and stopped in front of him. There was an exchange of words and the young man attacked him, he said.

During the struggle, the 17-year-old took out a knife and stabbed Perez. Perez’s two friends then intervened, and the attacker rode away on his bicycle.

Perez was then taken to the Orange Walk Hospital, in a serious condition, and later underwent surgery. His condition has been declared as being stable.
