Tourists Attacked on board Catamaran
The past weekend was particularly violent. Three persons were murdered from north to west but another brutal incident at high seas has the attention of the police department. A massive criminal investigation is underway over the rape of a sixty-one year old tourist and the stabbing of two others. There has been no official confirmation, but the incident apparently happened onboard a Catamaran SK Abenga that was passing near Pelican Caye. At around nine o’clock on Sunday night, four dark complexioned men who boarded the SK Abenga by skiff allegedly attacked the group. The two couples, over fifty years of age, were vacationing in the area when they were brutally attacked. From what we know, one of the women was stabbed to the abdomen and had to undergo surgery while a man was stabbed to the arm and was injured on the forehead. Following the incident, the S.K. Abenga, was steered to Yolanda’s Dock Yard in Placencia. Two passengers remained in Placencia and two injured Americans were were transported to the Western Regional Hospital for medical treatment. As we said, the police are in the high seas investigating.
