Alcohol consumption is believed to be the cause of the attempted murder of a father by his own son.
On the night of Saturday December 6th, 50 year old Joseph August was rushed to the hospital as he had been stabbed to the left side of his chest.
Joseph August and his family, including his 20-year-old son of Esperanza Village, Cayo, were socializing and consuming alcohol when they both got into an argument. The son reportedly left but returned a short while later with a knife and reportedly inflicted a stab wound to his father’s chest. Joseph August was transported to the San Ignacio Hospital, where he was later transported to the Western Regional Hospital in a stable condition.
His son was detained pending investigations.
