There was also a second stabbing incident in Orange Walk Town; it occurred in the wee hours of this morning. Three young men were stabbed at a wedding reception around twelve-twenty-three a.m. and rushed to the Northern Regional Hospital. Twenty-two year old Levy Bennett was stabbed once to the center of his chest and twice to the left side of his chest, while twenty-one year old Amin Mendez Junior was stabbed to the left side of abdomen and twenty-three year old Shamir Tzul was cut to the chest and behind left leg.

“Initial investigations reveal that on Thursday, the first, at about 11:45 p.m., while Levy and Mendez were at a wedding reception on Liberty Avenue, they were attacked by four male persons who had reached there in a Ford ranger pickup. All three persons were taken to the Northern Regional Hospital and admitted in a serious condition. We understand that Levy Bennett has been transported to the K.H.M.H. because he is more serious. At this moment police have three persons in custody pending investigation.”
