Jasmine Aguilar Viciously Stabbed; Ex-boyfriend Arrested and Charged

On Friday morning in Belize City, Jasmine Aguilar was viciously stabbed as she waited for a cab to pick her up near Linda Vista Street.  It was later discovered that the cruel attack which left Aguilar hospitalized at the K.H.M.H., was carried out by her ex-boyfriend. It’s another case of gender-based violence being committed against a woman. In the wake of the incident, police arrested and charged thirty-one-year-old Wilmer Rivero.  According to Assistant Commissioner of Police, Hilberto Romero, a previous complaint involving Rivero and physical abuse had been lodged with the Domestic Violence Unit.  As we reported on Friday, Aguilar was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in a taxi after being injured at the hands of her former boyfriend.
