Further west, in Benque Viejo del Carmen, two men were hospitalized and are in stable condition. The two were involved in a brawl at Otis Night Club early on Sunday morning. The injured men are security guards at the club who were assaulted by a group of five men reportedly over an old beef. According to the Public Relations Officer in the Ministry of Police, the group of five have been detained and charged.

“On Sunday just about 8 o’clock, police visited the Loma Luz Hospital in Cayo where they saw one Hernan Herman Leon and Jose Hinds suffering from multiple stab wounds. In relations to Herman Leon, he received about four stab wounds to his body and Jose Hinds received on to his ribcage. Apparently what happened; they were at Okis Night Club where they worked as security guards where they were approached by five men and they started an argument from an old misunderstanding that they had which resulted in the stabbing of these two security officers. Police detained the five men and have charged them with attempted murder.”

    Sorry guys, hope you recoup speedily and these crack brought to justice swiftly/harshly. Alcohol laws need to be more SEVERE. If someone has had more than 5 drinks, the bar should STOP selling them liquor and the latest they should sell alcohol is 2 a.m.

    landi, if you want the bars closed up. Then rise your voice over the license issued to them. They have a license to operate, BUT they have to renew every yr. SO IF YOU want them closed down then start by protesting the licenses that are being issued to everybody. Thank you for reading this.

    its well deserved what they did after being protected by Hon. Erwin Contreras b/c of being minions of the ministers cousin. These two “victims” gang has done very much harm to several Benqueños ex. football player Aldana, joe, Jerome, Chuky, eggy, winzo, and many more and bc of being affiliated to a particular party and stripes are always of the hook. Thanks

    This wanna be security officers are only good to smoke weed and sniff cocaine. They protect the vegas and all their followers. !@#$ em mofos, police knows what they do but they close their eyes cause they get their free drinks. They want to charge this young men with attempted murder but they cannot charge IAN VEGA with manslaughter for the death of the windy hills driver. And, the owner of Okis still owes taxes on his previous bar, how the !@#$ does he has Okis opened.

  7. paque lloran says:

    security guards- $#!% this two wanna be securities just know about sniffing cocaine and drinking every wkend.

  8. stop curruption says:

    So now this security guys don’t want to give a statement, neither does the bartender. Maybe they know that the security guys were drugged up and drunk at the time of the inccident. Maybe the police should figure out that all the problems that arise in benque has to do with the owner of the bar and his associates. Stop them and you stop them and you stop the crimes.

    That is so true about okis. In d 1st place diz person shouldn’t have diz place running, dey have a dirty background on cocaine, and their workers, especially d so called ‘security’ dey r d #1 cocaine sniffers. Why charge diz 5 persons for attempted murder? when it was d 2 security’s who approached them with baseball bat and knife. It was self defense. But diz security always get away with stabbing, caz diz is not d 1st time he stabb some1. I knw d Ayala’s brother, dey r very humble and keep out of trouble, dey r not d type of troublemakers who like fight. Police shud luk @ d security Leon background and stop playing foolish like dey did with Ian Vega. Police start do ur work and stop corruption.
