Relatives chopped in Penal during dispute over land

Three family members are today nursing injuries after they were chopped during a dispute over land in Penal.

Around 6.15 pm, a 57-year-old man reported to the police that his two stepsons attacked him in the garage of his Laltoo Trace home, following an argument over the land and the animals.

The man said he grabbed his cutlass and “swiped” at his attackers, seriously injuring one, age 34.

A female relative, said to be the man’s stepdaughter, stepped in to break up the fight, and she too received injuries.

The two men and woman were taken to the San Fernando General Hospital.
Penal police are investigating.
