ďIn Caye Caulker, we received a report that yes he was stabbed, he was transported by air ambulance to Belize. He was stabbed to the chest actually and we have one female detained. I am almost certain that that female will be charged shortly, but to give you an update on his position, I am not at liberty as yet because I havenít received an update on him. But as soon as this female is charged, I will release her name to you and other particulars and circumstances surrounding that incident.Ē
