4 Charged for Vicious Home Invasion

Four persons were in Court today for the very vicious beating of a young woman in Dangriga on Sunday afternoon. According to reports, and evidence, three women pushed their way into the home of Brimmime Martinez, one of them with a large knife in hand, and proceeded to pound on her in front of her two children. It’s a terrible scene, fists flying and children screaming. The brazen attack is almost unbelievable, except that it was all recorded by a fourth trespasser, a minor, who was also charged today. News Five spoke to Southern Zone Commander Senior Superintendent Ralph Moody who explained what the Police investigation into the incident uncovered.

 

On the Phone: Sr. Supt. Ralph Moody, Southern Regional Commander

“Brimmime Martinez, twenty-four years old, Belizean, a cashier of 1340 Lakeland Area, visited the Dangriga Police Station and reported that she was assaulted in her residence by four persons. Police then conducted an investigation into the matter where the following persons were arrested and charged – Samantha Lewis, Kimberley Lino, Triffany Cacho and a minor. They are presently in Police custody and will be escorted to the Independence Magistrate’s Court to face charges of Burglary, Aggravated Burglary and other charges as well.”

“Sir would you be able to provide any information about the motive and the charge of burglary? What the video shows is only the beating.”

 

On the Phone: Sr. Supt. Ralph Moody

“What happened is the complainant is saying that there was some sort of publishing of an item or document on Facebook against those individuals, and then they went over to her house, entered her house as trespassers. They were not invited into her house so that becomes a Burglary because you just can’t enter into a person’s house without being invited. One will be charged for Aggravated Assault because she entered the house with a knife.”

    What is happening in our Jewel??? Why would these women be so heartless and disrespectful and what kind of role models are they, using a minor to record their evil deeds??? They deserve a longgggg time behind bars!!!

    l am wondering what type of judicial system exists in our country ! When people chose to live like animals why must they be treated other than like anmals?

    It is a travesty of justice that the lady seen openly carrying the knife and offering it to the other accomplice was given bail because she was pregnant . Pregnant with the judge’s child or grandchild ?

    Suppose her actions had resulted in the victim being stabbed to death or disfigurement, would it have seemed proper that she got bailed while the others remained in jail?

    This is the same justice system that let’s go murderers to commit murders over and over without being incacerated for a decent period of time.

    Something’s are awrilly amiss !
