Bruce Reneau, a mason of an Iguana Street Extension address, is on remand at the Belize Central Prison after he was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm upon Kenroy Willoughby. Reneau was arraigned Friday, February 16, 2018. He appeared unrepresented before Magistrate Michelle Trapp.

In a police report made by the victim, Willoughby said that he and his brother were walking on Neal’s Pen Road in Belize City and as they walked through an alley, they heard two loud bangs. The brothers threw themselves on the ground and laid there for a while until they felt it was safe to get up. According to Willoughby, when he got up, he saw Reneau about 20 feet away from him holding two objects that appeared to be 9 mm pistols.  Reneau pointed the firearm in the brother’s direction and fired four shots, all of which missed them. The brothers took cover behind a septic tank and eventually ran down Neal’s Pen Road into Central American Boulevard where they both escaped unhurt.

In court, Reneau pleaded not guilty to the charge but due to the nature of the offense, he was denied bail and remanded into custody until April 17, 2018.
