Minor wounded in altercation with father

9. CRIMETuesday, August 4th, 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: There was an incident reported in Sandhill on Monday where a 16-year-old minor was stabbed.

The incident is sensitive but we understand that it happened when he was caught in a compromising position with a young woman, allegedly by that young woman’s father, who inflicted the stab wounds.

Senior Superintendent Edward Broaster confirmed the detention of the minor and the father, neither of whom can be named for legal reasons.

The minor is expected to be charged for his actions as well. For the record, the age of consent for both male and female to sexual intercourse in Belize is 16, though there was an amendment recently introduced.
