INCIDENT AT COROZAL RC SCHOOL PROMPTS COMMUNITY NOTICE

REPORTER: Mike Rudon, –

The Mary Hill R.C. School in Corozal Town has sent out an advisory to students, parents and the general public following an incident which occurred on Thursday.

According to the advisory, “At approximately 8:45am a man came into the compound through one of the small gates and approached one of our employees. He asked a series of questions regarding our school and principal.”

The release goes on the say that the man eventually asked for financial assistance and got ‘aggressive’ when refused, resulting in him being escorted off campus and the Police being called. He was allegedly picked up by Police off-campus and detained, before being released.

The man who was detained by Police in Corozal has been identified as Steven Douglas, an American residing in Placencia. Facebook posts have pointed to him as a person who travels across the country soliciting financial assistance from individuals and entities, using a variety of excuses. He has been accused by various persons as becoming aggressive when he is questioned or refused that assistance.

All indication to the Reporter is that Douglas is in the country legally, and while his behavior has been described as unpleasant and aggressive, there is nothing that Police can use to hold him at this time.

We understand, also that there is some confusion because Douglas resembles Roger Wallis, the British national who was charged two weeks ago after allegedly attempting to abduct a child, 8, in Belmopan.
