Minor wounded in altercation with father

There was an incident reported in Sandhill on Monday where a 16-year-old minor was stabbed. The incident is sensitive but we understand that it happened when he was caught in a compromising position with a young woman, allegedly by that young woman’s father, who inflicted the stab wounds. Senior Superintendent Edward Broaster gave basic details of what transpired in speaking with the press today.

“The circumstance surrounding that incident, what led to that stabbing?”

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster

“Well, the circumstance leading to that stabbing was the fact that he found him in his house doing something that he should not have been doing.”

Reporter
“What would that be sir, stealing?”

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster
“I will not comment any further on it.”

Reporter
“Reports reaching to us is that he found his daughter sleeping with this 16 year old.”

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster
“Well, I would surely hope that whether or not that is the case. His name is not called, otherwise I’m sure the minor would be exposed.”

The minor is expected to be charged for his actions as well. For the record, the age of consent for both male and female to sexual intercourse in Belize is 16, though there was an amendment recently introduced.
