By BBN Staff: It never made the news but on Thursday afternoon a Chinese store was robbed in Corozal town.
Sometime after 3 o’clock while the sun was still shining, three men entered Chang Fa Restaurant and Bar on Park Street North.
One of the men pretended to buy a juice and that was when one of the other men pulled out a firearm while another took out a knife.
The store owner and her thirteen-year-old son were unhurt, but they were forced into their storage room and locked up while the robbers made off with their belongings.
We note that two cell phones and an undisclosed amount of cash were stolen.
The incident was caught on a security camera but the robbers also stole the camera but left the tape recorder behind.
Police are investigating.
