6. ASSUALT: The Guam Police Department responded to a call on Sunday at the Frank Perez Beach Park in Pago Bay, at approximately 8pm. It appears that an elderly male individual visited our park on Father’s Day, by himself, which escalated into an altercation with other persons at the Pago Bay Park during this time period. This male individual suffered injuries to his face, which was initially treated by responders from the Guam Fire Department before being transported to GMH for further treatment of his injuries. Although, I have not been provided with any additional information regarding this incident, I would like to advise ALL of our residents to be safe when you go out in the evening.

At a minimum, travel in pairs and always be aware of your surroundings.

Your help is needed and, I humbly seek the assistance of ALL residents; asking each of you be vigilant and watchful of our community and report any unusual activities occurring in your area. If you believe that you have credible information regarding the person or persons victimizing our Villages, please step forward and help us identify who these individuals are. Your active support is the only “real solution” that will put a stop to the crime plaguing our Island
