Family drama in Belize City leaves two persons in jail

Family drama in Belize City has left two persons behind bars. Police were called to the home yesterday afternoon, where a 53 year old resident reported that he got into an argument with his 34 year old step daughter, who also lives at the house. He claims she chopped him on the right upper shoulder with a hatchet, which caused a large cut wound. The woman was detained for the crimes of aggravated assault and wounding. But the alleged victim is also in custody, not for assaulting his step daughter though, but his step granddaughter. The 14 year old accused him of slapping her, during a misunderstanding the two had. He is facing a possible charge of common assault.
