A 54-year-old man who said he was chopped by his brother-in-law while at his business place in La Horquetta on Sunday 11th December, has accused the police of refusing to take their report and investigate the matter.

• Charl Issa, the owner of Charlies Gyros, located at De Freitas Boulevard in La Horquetta, said he was chopped on the neck and cut on his hands when his brother-in-law Hosanna Sookar, attacked him at his business.
