Elderly woman robbed

Police are continuing investigations into the robbery of a woman in her early sixties at her Christ Church home
on Sunday.

The senior reported that the man sprayed a substance in her face and stole an undisclosed sum of money around 3:45 p.m.

According to lawmen, the man used several excuses to gain access to the woman’s house, including that he had package from her grandson. The woman has no such relative.

Police public relations officer Acting Assistant Superintendent David Welch has appealed to the public to guard themselves against persons “using this trickery to gain confidence to enter homes to steal”.

    Why is it that under a Democratic Labour Party Government , these activities tend to escalate and the country tends to take a step back. During the 1986 to 94 period and especially during the 91 to 94 segment , Barbados was under a Dark Cloud and in a deep hole socially, economically and financially . After Arthur and the BLP rescued , restored and rebuilt Barbados , these idiots come and bruk um down again.
