Teenager charged with wounding 2 females during Baymen Avenue Carnival Day brawl

Posted: Tuesday, November 7, 2023. 8:53 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: A brawl on Baymen Avenue during the Carnival Road March in September left many persons injured as a result.

Almost two months later, the Belize Police Department’s investigation into the matter continues as yet another female was charged for her involvement.

18-year-old Amica Trapp of Nargusta Street, Belize City was read two counts of wounding in the Magistrate’s Court.

Allegations are that on September 9, the day of the Road March, she caused a wound to a 17-year-old minor as well as alleged wounding upon Jafarah Wallace.

Trapp pleaded guilty to wounding the 17-year-old minor, but not guilty to wounding Wallace.

For her guilty plea, Trapp was fined $500 and cost of court which she was ordered to pay by December 29, in default, 5 months imprisonment.

As it related to the second count of wounding, for which Trapp pleaded not guilty, she told the Senior Magistrate she does not even know who is Jafarah Wallace, and so she could not understand how she could wound someone she does not even know. She told the court she is not in agreement with Wallace’s statement where Wallace reportedly told the police she knew Trapp for the past 5 years.

The Senior Magistrate granted Trapp bail in the sum of $700 plus one surety of the same amount which she met. She is not to interfere with Wallace or any members or her family; she is also not to be within 25 feet of Wallace.

Trapp returns to court on January 8, 2024.
