San Ignacio Man Viciously Chopped By Four Attackers

Reymundo Reyes

A San Ignacio resident is tonight in critical condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital after he was attacked on Sunday night by a group of four men. Felix Romero was leaving his mother-in-law’s house when the group pounced on him. The incident happened on Flamingo Street near Kenny’s Store in San Ignacio. Romero was chopped to the head and both legs; one of his legs was almost severed. He was rushed to the San Ignacio Hospital before being transported to the K.H.M.H. News Five spoke with San Ignacio Police who say that Romero and the group had a previous altercation for which the men are before the courts for the wounding of Romero.

“Sometime around nine-forty-four p.m., San Ignacio police received information of a male person at the San Ignacio Town hospital with what appears to be chopped wounds. As a result, police visited the hospital where they saw one Felix Romero, resident of Flamingo Avenue suffering from what appears to be chopped wounds to both his left and right knee and other cut wounds to his body. He was treated and later transported to K.H.M.H. for further treatment. Initially investigation that we have at this moment is that Mister Romero was at his mother-in-law’s residence and when he was opening the gate for his mother-in-law that was when he was attacked by four male persons and as a result he sustained the injuries that he is being treated for now at the K.H.M.H.”

“A motive behind this attack on Mister Felix?”

“We have been dealing with this issue with Mister Felix and the other party and this ongoing dispute between them. Charges have been laid against the other part because of a report that was previously made. It is in front of the court, but apparently it escalated to what happened last night with Mister Felix Romero being injured by these persons.”


Two persons have been detained and police are looking for two others in connection with this chopping. Inspector Reyes says that the group can possibly face charges of attempted murder and use of deadly means of harm upon Romero.
