Brothers charged in connection with brawl on Caye Caulker Friday night

Posted: Tuesday, August 15, 2023. 12:24 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: La Isla Cariñosa was not so friendly over the weekend when two brothers got into a brawl with others on Friday night, for which they have now been charged.

Brothers Eber and Gerson Guerra have been charged with assault and grievous harm, respectively. Gerson, the younger, appeared on Monday in Magistrate’s Court in Belize City while Eber will be arraigned in San Pedro Town on Thursday.

Gerson Guerra pleaded not guilty to his charge and was offered and met bail of $2,000 subject to not interfering with the virtual complainant, Abimael Riveroll, his family or other prosecution witnesses; keeping a 100-yard distance and avoiding any further criminal charges. He returns to court on October 6 in San Pedro.

Eber will be charged with assault on Hector Riveroll, son of Abimael, on Thursday at the San Pedro Magistrate Court.

Guerra, his face still showing visible signs of injury, told our court reporter that he was socializing with 6 to 8 men, including the father and son, as they are all co-workers. There was a misunderstanding among them and he was attacked, Gerson joining in to defend him.

The elder Guerra stated, “I get charge fih common assault, none of them bally get charge and pick up. Only me get lock down from Friday and Sunday night they let me go. I nuh gawn dah court yet. Deh send me dah San Pedro and my breda right yah and it’s the same case… Well we mih the drink together and a miss understanding happen. We catch in a physical war and ih look like so much ah them jump me. Meanwhile me and he mih the fight, six or eight man, nobody call police and then my niece, my two niece pick me up and try carry me and that’s when my breda come and see me full ah blood and buss up and he just react cause he see me, he see the way how I am.”
