Seine Bight Villager is facing charges of Aggravated Assault and Wounding

Zebedee Martir, who allegedly suffers from mental illness, is facing charges of Aggravated Assault and Wounding. He is accused of injuring a police officer on duty in Seine Bight Village. On the morning of August twenty-third, Martir reportedly inflicted chop wounds on special constable Rafael Caliz. The cop was attempting to appease Martir, who turned on him with a machete and chopped him to the head. Police say they had to fire warning shots to persuade Martir to drop the machete. One of the shots hit him on the forearm.  Both men have received treatment.
