Crime and Violence Report in Belize

Monday, April 7, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: An altercation inside the Blue House Bar on the Philip Goldson Highway, a stone’s throw from the police station, early on Saturday morning led to injuries for two men.

Dennis Burke, 47, apparently got into an altercation with one Edwin Perez and both had to be escorted out.

They continued to brawl and Perez’s brother, Oscar Perez, a construction worker of Airport Road, intervened.

He, it is alleged, pulled out a folded five-inch pocket knife and stabbed Burke in the chest. Burke retaliated by shooting Oscar Perez with his licensed 9mm handgun in the abdomen.

Both men were treated at the BDF hospital at Price Barracks before being transported to the KHMH.

According to Officer Commanding Ladyville Police ASP Christopher Noble, the bar is notorious for wild activity and authorities have ignored the Police’s pleas not to continue granting licenses to it. Police investigations continue.
