REPORTER: News Staff, – August 29th.

Police in Caye Caulker have detained one man and are seeking one more for questioning in relation to a brawl on the island which resulted in serious injuries to a female tourist and a resident of the island.

On August 28th at around 11:00 p.m. Amado Watson, 47, and his companion American national Kathleen Perry, 33, were both rushed by boat to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in Belize City for emergency care. Both individuals were attacked and pummelled with stones and bottles by a group of persons outside of Barrier Reef Sports Bar on Pasero Street.

Witnesses who were at the scene of the fight say that Watson was hit in his head with a cement block and was carted away unconscious, bleeding from his ears and mouth. He was later admitted to the KHMH in a critical condition. However, since Tuesday his condition has improved and he has been upgraded to a stable condition.

The American woman identified as Kathleen Perry is only visiting Belize and we were informed that she sustained a large wound below her nose and was initially listed in a stable condition. According to Police she has been released from the hospital and is lodging a report at the Caye Caulker police station to press charges against the person who is responsible for her injury.

Watson and Perry were part of a group that was socializing at the establishment when an argument ensued between them and another group of patrons at the bar. Shortly after, the argument moved onto the street-side outside the bar, where the injuries were inflicted on both person.

Police confirmed that both groups knew each other and had started to argue over a minor issue which unfortunately escalated out of control.

Both individuals were taken to the Caye Caulker Health Center where they were stabilized and later transported to KHMH.
