18 year old maimed by his passengers;  vehicle burnt

An 18 year old resident of Ladyville was maimed. On Wednesday January 20,  at about 7:35pm, Jonathon Zetina’s mother was in the process of reporting him missing at the police station in Belmopan.  While she was giving the report, her son Jonathan came out of a pickup truck whose driver said that he picked up Zetina in Cotton Tree Village. Zetina was bleeding and so was taken to the Western Regional Hospital. He was suffering from a cut wound to the left side of his head. His middle and ring finger were completely amputated at the first joint, and he also h12570816_10153588375754213_876902337_nad a large cut to the back of his neck. It has been reported that Zetina was driving to Belmopan, in the company of three persons from Roaring Creek known to him when he was attacked by his passengers at gunpoint. The young man was reportedly  forced to pull the vehicle over to the side of the road and the passengers then took Zetina into the nearby bush where he was viciously chopped.  Somehow, Zetina managed to escape his attackers and ran out into the Highway where he received help from the good Samaritan.  The vehicle in which Zetina was travelling was stolen. Late this evening, police told us that they have found the stolen vehicle burned and that they have detained three persons from Roaring Creek, believed to be the passengers who were with Zetina. Our crew is still at the location where the burned vehicle was found. We will share more information with you on this developing story as it becomes available.
