Woman says B.D.F. punched her and pointed gun
A Belize Defence Soldier is in police detention following an assault on a Belize City woman. Sherlette Lamb told police that on Tuesday night she was socializing at the Riverside Patio when she got into an argument with a man. Lamb reported that during the confrontation, the man punched her to the left side of the neck and face which caused some swelling. But it appeared as if the physical contact wasn’t enough, because Lamb said the man later took a gun from a B.D.F. Soldier, pointed it at her and made a threat on her life. Lamb said she was scared and ran inside a bathroom. As a result, police detained twenty three year old B.D.F. Soldier, Darwin Hernandez and continue to investigate.
