By BBN Staff: Today, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, provided an update on the case of Tevin Cacho, 2, who was knocked down by a police mobile last week.

Williams revealed that on Friday at around 8 p.m. police were on mobile patrol on Antelope Street in Belize City.

That was when they observed several individuals loitering and publicly drinking at Kim’s Shop.

Several officers exited the vehicle to speak with the persons at the establishment.

However, the driver remained inside and attempted to park the vehicle when several persons screamed out that he had ran over a child.

The driver quickly exited the vehicle and with the assistance of other persons, he was able to remove the child.

The child was then rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he remains hospitalized.

Williams revealed that the driver, police constable, Marvin Mckoy, and the mother of the child are equally responsible for this sad situation.

“Some may want to blame the police but the mother is equally culpable,” he explained.

According to him, the child should not have been out on the street at that time and even more so in an unsupervised fashion.

However, Williams conceded that the mother is at this time grieving and so officers don’t want to treat her “harshly.”

According to him, the Belize Police Department is not accepting liability for this incident.

Yet, if investigations reveal that the officer was at fault, he would be treated like anyone else before the law said, Williams.

“We are not going to cover for anyone,” he said.
