Convicted prisoner Cruz Allen had to be rushed to the KHMH on Wednesday April 2 after he got into an altercation on a prison bus and had a portion of his ear bitten off.

The fight took place onboard the prison bus sometime between 8a.m. and 9a.m. when prisoners were being brought to court from the Belize Central Prison. By the time the bus came to a halt at the Court Parking Lot area at around 8:50 a.m., Cruz had already been badly injured.

We understand that there was a misunderstanding onboard the bus just before they arrived at the parking lot where someone bit off a piece of his ear. Only Cruz knows who bit off a piece of his ear but he is not saying much to authorities.

After receiving medical attention Allen was escorted back to court sometime around 11:50a.m but his case was put on hold because of his injury.

Cruz Allen is serving a 15 year jail term. He was recently convicted back in 2013 for a burglary for which he was sentenced to 10 years. The other 5 year conviction is for a previous crime.
