Man Critical After Chopping In Orange Walk

Alberto Canche

On Monday, the bloody footage of a man who had been viciously chopped to the face and body made its short-lived rounds on the social media. It was taken off shortly after because of its graphic nature. That footage shows twenty-seven year old Irvin Cantun bleeding profusely with multiple chop wounds to the mouth, head, arm and body. The attack occurred very early Monday morning in San Jose Palmar in Orange Walk Town, and in short order the Police had picked up the man they believe is responsible, twenty-five year old Alberto Canche. Today Assistant Superintendent of Police, Selvyn Tillett, told News Five that the attack was provoked by the victim.

“We have arrested and charged a young man by the surname of Canche from the same San Jose Palmar. He has been charged with Dangerous Harm and Use of Deadly Means of Harm. He is detained and will be taken to the Court sometime today or tomorrow.”

“Have you been able to come up with any motive for the chopping?”


ASP Selvyn Tillett

“We understand that the young man Cantun, the victim, was also in San Jose Village socializing and Mr. Canche was passing by and he provoked him, using some word that provoked him causing Mr. Canche to react in that way, causing said injuries.”


Irvin Cantun remains in very critical condition at the K.H.M.H.
