Chop now; ask questions later in Independence Village

Two men were injured following separate incidents in Independence Village on Monday. Police say that forty-seven year old Aurelio Menjivar invited Jorge Humberto Hernandez to his office at around eight-thirty on Monday morning, to settle a misunderstanding they had on Saturday. But Hernandez became enraged and pulled out a machete chopping Menjivar twice to the right hand, three times to the left hand, once to right cheek and once to back of the head. Hernandez later fled in a white pick-up truck belonging to the Big Creek Port Group. At around eleven this morning Police recovered the vehicle in some bushes about two miles inside the TEXMAR Shrimp Farm off the Southern Highway. Menjivar remains hospitalized at the Southern Regional Hospital in a critical but stable condition. The second incident took place on Monday when seventy three year old Rayman Frazer was held up at Leon’s Garage where he also resides, on the Big Creek Road in Independence Village. Frazer, who is the watchman for the business, was encountered by a police mobile at the residence of Florence Lozano. He was bleeding profusely from the mouth and was seen suffering from a cut wound to the left ear. Investigations reveal that around twelve-fifteen that afternoon Frazer was attacked by several men, one of whom hit him with a blunt object after which the men proceeded to beat him to the face and upper body. The assailants took Frazer’s wallet containing five hundred dollars. Police are now looking for Ivan Godoy for questioning in connection with this incident.

    Here we have a whole bunch of candidates for the Greybar Hotel. Anyone want to bet whether alcohol was involved in one or both of these violent incidents?
