By Breaking Belize News Staff: A retired police officer is recovering after he was assaulted outside of Five Brothers Bar in Belize City, while his attackers are out on bail.

On Wednesday, 26-year-old Tariq Phillips, and 22-year-old Miguel Angel Alvarez, appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court, Phillips for common assault and Alvarez for grievous harm.

Both men pleaded not guilty to their charges and were granted bail, which they met.
