Vicious Chopping in Armenia

An Armenia villager is in critical, but stable condition at the Western Regional Hospital after he was chopped multiple times to the head and body as he slept in a hammock underneath a house in the village. The incident occurred sometime before two o’clock on Tuesday morning and while police have one person in custody, ACP Joseph Myvett says that they are unable to determine a motive for the crime.

“They observed a male Hispanic person in an unconscious state with multiple chop wounds to the body and head. His name was later learnt to be Lucio Ruiz. So far, police have one person in custody pending this investigation. No charges have yet been preferred as the police investigation is still ongoing.”


As it relates to the maim of Jose Ical, which occurred in Saint Margaret’s Village over the weekend, investigators are seeking one person in connection with that crime. Police have, however, charged twenty-one-year-old Elias Lopez for the crime of aggravated assault of Lionel Bustillos who was at the time with Ical when the chopping occurred.
