By Breaking Belize News Staff: On Saturday night, a Guatemalan farm worker was seriously injured after he was chopped with a machete during an altercation in Bella Vista Village, Toledo District.

The incident occurred just after 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 1st, 2023. 43-year-old Edgar Leonel Solis Lorenzana was reportedly in the company of a female companion when they were approached by another man who is a resident of San Isidro village. A struggle ensued between Lorenzana and Beltran, during which Beltran allegedly inflicted a severe chop wound on Lorenzana with a machete, resulting in the complete severing of Lorenzana’s right wrist.

Following the assault, Lorenzana was rushed to Independence Poly Clinic for immediate medical attention and was later transferred to Southern Regional Hospital for further treatment.

The Belize police were alerted to the incident and visited the scene in Bella Vista Village. At the crime scene, officers found blood along with the severed human wrist, confirmed later to be Lorenzana’s. The crime scene was photographed and processed by the Scenes of Crime team.

Despite the severity of the incident, authorities were unable to record formal statements from the victim or the main witness as they were both allegedly under the influence. As a result the motive behind the assault could not be determined.

Charges against the attacker are expected pending the outcome of the ongoing investigation.
