3 grown men charged for attempted murder of 15 year old

Joseph Vacarro

In the magistrate’s court three grown men were arraigned for the stabbing of a minor. The trio appeared before Magistrate Hettie-Mae Stewart. They are fifty-four year old Joseph Vacarro, a fire fighter and driver of a Jane Usher Boulevard address, thirty-four year old Rupert Garnette, a resident of Oleander Street in Belize City and thirty-three year old Kenrick Crawford, an auto mechanic of Vernon Street. The three were jointly charged with Attempted Murder and Dangerous Harm and were remanded to the Belize Central Prison until March twelfth, 2014.

Rupert Garnette

The incident for which they are charged occurred back on January sixteenth and involves fifteen year old Christian Martinez, who was stabbed multiple times and left to die. But fortunately for him, he made it to the K.H.M.H. and survived the incident. Martinez was riding his bicycle and was near his home when the three men exited a vehicle and threw a maul which hit him to the back. One of the assailants then stabbed him with an ice pick.

    Wow how big of them 3 big @$% grown men victimizing one single child. Hope these men dont have kids cause the way the world works god will punish them or there kids without that child even having to lift a single finger to hurt them back. I guess it must make them feel big and macho harming a child cause they for sure wouldnt be man enough to harm 3 big @%# grown men like themselves cause they know what theyd get back in return.
