City man’s New Year’s greeting to his girlfriend is a rum bottle to the face

Conrad Dougal

The New Year got off to a rocky start for a Belize City couple; forty-nine year old Sherland Sanker and fifty-two year old Conrad Dougal. It’s so bad that Dougal ended up before a Magistrate today to face charges of Aggravated Assault and Grievous Harm. According to Sanker, she went to visit Dougal on New Year’s Day at his home on Sarstoon Street. She says she knocked at his front door and told him to open it. Dougal, who was apparently inebriated, opened the door and allegedly bashed Sanker in the face with a rum bottle. Bleeding and in pain, Sanker called her daughter to take her to the hospital and then to the police station to file a report. In court, Dougal pleaded not guilty and was granted bail of one thousand two hundred dollars with the condition that he does not interfere with the alleged victim or any witnesses. He is due back in court on February twenty-second.

    Come on folks, you are both too old for this spit. He was obviously drunk & needs to dry out somewhere, attend AA & receive anger management. Why was she at his house demanding that this ignoramus open the door? Another woman maybe? Let her have this booby prize

    Women of Belize leave these idiot asses alcoholic Belizean men alone, the wrong choices in life can have dramatic effects on you, it’s really not that hard to identify an idiot.

    Thankfully she have the sense to take it to the police and bring up charges against him. I don’t know if I could refrain from giving him a taste of his own medicine, but good for her.
