According to twenty-nine year old Gilroy Nicholas Junior, he was on the verandah at his home in the Shawville Area of the Western Town when a male assailant stabbed him three times on the chest. Nicholas was stabbed twice on the right side of the chest and once on the left. He was transported later transported to the K.H.M.H. in Belize City, where he underwent surgery.

    I’m not crazy about victims and witnesses who refuse to cooperate with police. When police can’t do their job, then we are all put in greater danger.

    This guy will not reveal nor testify against his attacker because there’s no victim nor eyewitness protection plan in Belize. Statistics showed that many victims and eyewitnesses were being threatened or killed because of that same reason.
