Police Search Continues for Jose Bejerano Sanchez

Police continue to search for Jose Bejerano Sanchez, who is wanted for the vicious stabbing of his ex common-law wife. On Sunday, the Guatemalan national visited Alba Chavez at her workplace, Maya Star Restaurant and Bar in Belmopan. According to an eyewitness, there were no signs that Bejerano Sanchez intended to attack Chavez, but suddenly he did. He then proceeded to stab Chavez as many as eleven times to the body. Chavez’s boss intervened and struck Bejerano with a chair to free Chavez from his drunken attack. Chavez was rushed to the Western Regional Hospital where she is receiving treatment. Police gave official details of the attempted murder today saying that there is no record of domestic violence when they lived together.
