Elderly couple assaulted by vicious intruder

Story Picture
A vicious attack on an elderly couple has left a husband in the hospital and a family in shock. According to police, the attack happened at the home of Norman and Ethel Young, ages eighty-seven and eight-four respectively, at number ten King Street in Belize City. Reports are that sometime around 1:00 p.m. on New Year’s Day, a dark skinned man entered the house through an open door and immediately started beating up the couple. The intruder was hitting Ethel when thirty-four year old Carlos Mis, an aid who lives downstairs, walked in on the scene. Surprised by Mis’ return, the attacker turned on him. When it was all over, Norman Young was unconscious…his wife Ethel and Mis hurt, and the intruder had escaped with cash. Ethel Young was treated and released from the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for injuries to the side of her face, while Norman remains admitted to ward at the K.H.M.H. in serious, but stable condition. Anyone with information about the Youngs’ attacker is asked to please contact the nearest police department.
