Belmopan Police Chasing Horseback Attacker

Alwin “Boots” Cruz

Belmopan Police are looking for Alwin “Boots” Cruz following an attempted stabbing incident that happened in the “Another World” area of Roaring Creek Village. On Sunday shortly before three-thirty, it is reported that Cruz, who was on a horse, was holding a knife and trying to stab a woman.  Police intervened and ordered Cruz to dismount the horse, but instead he rode in the direction of the police officers. One of the officers on the scene took out his point thirty-eight service revolver and fired a single shot which hit the horse on one of its legs. Cruz later jumped off, leaving the animal behind, and ran away into the village escaping the authorities. Police are now looking for Cruz. If you see him, you are asked to call the nearest police station.
