By Aaron Humes: Police have formally arrested and charged Manuel Rodriguez, a bartender of Bryan Estate, Burrell Boom, with the attempted murder of his common-law wife Shona Baptist on Thursday last and with use of deadly means of harm.

Baptist, 26, a call center agent, was attacked by an allegedly intoxicated Rodriguez at their shared home during an apparent domestic dispute. Villagers responded and helped Police hold Rodriguez until he could be transported to Ladyville, with the brazen attack provoking anger on the scene and on social media.

Regional Commander of the Belize Police Department’s Eastern Division, Assistant Commissioner of Police Hilberto Romero said that this was the first time that the police were called out to the home to deal with a domestic disturbance: “She was taken to the KHMH where she is in a stable condition at this time… They had a dispute. Apparently, Manuel Rodriguez was under the influence of alcohol. The villagers came to the rescue of Shona Baptist and that is where the accused was detained by the villagers.”
