Cop is Finally Arraigned for Negligent Harm on Toddler

Marvin Christopher McKoy

A two-year-old toddler was injured when a GSU vehicle ran over him about seven months on Iguana Street Extension, Belize City.  Fortunately, he survived his near death ordeal.  And even after the Belize Police Department had served one of their own officers with a Notice of Intended Prosecution, it took them seven months to charge P.C. Marvin Christopher McKoy, a member of the Gang Suppression Unit. Mckoy appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court this morning at around ten o’clock to be arraigned.  But the matter was reverted to the Traffic Court where PC McKoy was slapped with a charge of negligent harm for the December thirteenth, 2018 incident in which the toddler was gravely injured.  According to reports, the toddler was running across the street to his mother, who was at a store in the neighbourhood. When PC McKoy drove up, his vehicle hit the child and according to eyewitnesses, the toddler was caught under the front wheel of the police mobile. Bystanders had to lift the truck to pull the child out. One eyewitness said that when he went to the scene to remove the child from under the wheel, the officers did not want to help. Tevin’s mother, Sherima Moody, told News Five that McKoy remained frozen behind the driver’s seat in shock and the engine of the vehicle was running.
