Assailant gets two years for hitting tourist

It was one of those terrible, unexplained incidents which travelers fear and host countries dread. Yesterday morning on Orange Street, a Swedish woman was hit in the head by a man wielding a board just moments after she and two other students got off a bus from Cancun. Tourism police apprehended Leroy Dunn of East Collet Canal and he was convicted by the Quick Trial Court just hours later. He will spend two years at the Hattieville Prison for the attack which was by all accounts unprovoked. The young woman had to get seven stitches for the cut on her head.
