By Aaron Humes: Teenagers 18-year-old Tyrique Quinn Smith and 19-year-old Prince Alex Copious, accused of wounding on 63-year-old Senior Citizen, Lizbrown Ivan Sydney Flowers, are on remand at the Central Prison.
Flowers was attacked while walking on Lacroix Boulevard located in the Saint Martin’s De Porres area, Belize City on Tuesday, August 13.
Before Magistrate Stephanie Gillett, the prosecutor argued for no bail, citing that the act is “cold and calculated…disturbing” and on a senior citizen, no less. He added that it took place in front of witnesses who have come forward and assisted police in their investigation which led to the teenagers’ arrest.
In reply, Copious claimed provocation and self-defense, saying he only acted when the elderly man hit at his friend, Smith, first then missed him and caught him.
An angry Smith claimed that the elderly man had stolen money from him four days prior to the incident and that when he was small, the same man supposedly used to “take advantage” of him.
The Magistrate delayed consideration of bail until next week Wednesday, August 21, 2019.
Flowers told police he believes he was attacked and beaten up for no apparent reason.
