By BBN Staff: Police say they have been looking for Wasani and Jafari Castro, sons of Minister of Transport Edmond Castro, since Sunday in connection with a brutal case of aggravated assault.
Police say that the victim, 21-year-old Kevin Brown, was at Banana Beach Resort with a group of friends when a dispute arose over a piece of jewelry.
During the dispute, someone from the group repeatedly kicked Brown and then bashed his head with a fire extinguisher. His injuries were so severe that he had to be airlifted from San Pedro to Belize, where he reportedly slipped into a coma.
In June, the Castro brothers were found themselves in trouble with both police and the Customs Department, for driving an unlicensed vehicle, punching a police officer and being caught with 89 cases of contraband Corona beer.
