Four charged in San Ignacio beating

Meanwhile police say they have arrested and charged four young men for their involvement in a bar fight in San Ignacio that left another man in a coma. Nineteen year old Darwin Mendez, twenty-three year old Calvin Welch, twenty year old Willy Aguirre and a sixteen year old have all been charged with dangerous harm and damage to property. It is alleged the four were part of a gang of young men who viciously beat twenty-one year old Rodrick Matura on Sunday in San Ignacio. Matura was admitted to the K.H.M.H. in a critical condition, but was flown to Merida earlier today for medical treatment. Matura’s family is appealing to the public for financial assistance to help defray medical expenses. They can be contacted at 70800 in Belize City.
