One of two men accused of badly beating an interdicted police officer, now taxi driver, has been identified as 20-year-old Juan Sis. Sis appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 after more than two days of lock down. Doctors have yet to determine the level of injuries inflicted on the victim, therefore no plea was taken from Sis. He was arraigned on a single count of grievous harm.

The attack occurred on Sunday, August 13, 2017. Sacario Cuz was taken to the KHMH after he was found lying on the street in front of the Belize City Center on Central American Boulevard by a crowd of people after he was viciously attacked. Cuz was seen bleeding from the head and is now suffering from a swollen face.

According to the police report, Cuz was on Central American Boulevard when he was approached by the accused and another man who requested the service of his taxi. Cuz refused to give the two men his taxi service and ordered them out of the vehicle. The two men then proceeded to attack Cuz and left him lying on the ground, bleeding profusely.

Cuz was left for dead and it was not until a crowd of people found him lying on the ground that he was helped. Eyewitnesses say that they saw two men running from the scene. One of those men seen running from the scene was later identified as Juan Sis who was found at a home still wearing the clothes given in a witness description.

Sis was remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until September 19, 2017.
