Oscar Williams Clings to Life After Vicious Assault by Gang of City Youths

Over the weekend, Oscar Williams was brutally attacked by a group of men when he tried to defend his daughter from a group of young men hurling disrespectful remarks at her. Williams is unconscious and remains hospitalized, as he slowly recovers. News Five’s Andrea Polanco has the story.

Forty-two year old Oscar Williams remains hospitalized after he was attacked by six young men on Saturday afternoon. Williams and his thirteen-year-old daughter were walking here on Southern Foreshore when the men, who were hanging out at this abandoned building, started to hurl insults at the teenager. Williams, unhappy at the offensive remarks, decided to approach the group.

“He was with my youngest daughter and he left like three to go and collect some money. When returning back home, they meet up with about six young men and they start yelling things to my daughter.”

“These men; he doesn’t know these men?”


Yolanda Williams

“No. No. He doesn’t know them. It’s the first time. One of the young men shouted that he was my daughter’s ex boyfriend and he was the one for whom my daughter throw away the baby for. I mean my child is just thirteen years. I guess he got upset with what he heard and he went back to approach them as to why they were saying these things. I mean, it wasn’t only them there, it was more people. When my daughter saw her dad going towards the guys, she ran home.”

By the time Yolanda and her daughters arrived at the scene, Williams had already been badly beaten up and was seen suffering from massive head injuries.

“My other daughter, she went with my youngest daughter to see what was happening. When she got there she said that she found her dad unconscious on the ground, bleeding from his head and his mouth. A man came to my house and said something is happening out there that my daughter was screaming. I got scared and I ran out there and I saw him unconscious on the ground.”

“Where is this area exactly? Is this near to home?”


Yolanda Williams

“It’s…yeah, it is near to home because we live by Supreme Court and it happened on Foreshore by the white abandoned house. So, it’s pretty close, like two minutes walk. I ran there and he was unconscious bleeding. I called the police and they bring us to the hospital.”


As a result of the attack, Williams suffered brain injury which has since affected his memory. He remains hospitalized at the K.H.M.H.

“At that time, he didn’t know who he was or who we were or anything. He didn’t know anything. He was really aggressive because the hit that they gave him touched his brains. The doctor says that due to the hit, the brain was swollen and it has blood stains on it. So that makes him remember what recently happened. That makes him aggressive because he thinks that he is still fighting with those guys. At this moment he is hearing and he is stable and is recovering very slowly. He doesn’t quite remember anything. He doesn’t know what happened. He remembers his two daughters and his mom. But that’s it.”

Williams did some medical examinations today and he is awaiting those results. So far, no one has been arrested for the attack on Williams.

    Belize youth remind me of a pack of apes in the jungle. Someone enters there territory and the go berserk and attack in groups. Start fighting one on one and show us that you are really men.
    I would love to fights a few of these guys one on one. Show them that there are hard working, descent men out here that are tougher than they are.

    Send some of these bastards to the border to fight the Guatemalans. They seem to have the guts and the fire power.

    Belize City, filled with such kind and wonderful churchgoing people, is most certainly the place to visit in 2015. (Be sure to bring your helmet.)
