By BBN Staff: A Belize City man is in police custody after he robbed a Chinese grocer in broad daylight today.
Information to BBN is that minutes ago the unidentified man held up DK Supermarket on the Philip Goldson Highway at knifepoint.
He then took off with a backpack containing an undisclosed amount of cash.
However, the Chinese cashier and two of his employees pursued the robber on foot.
In his Jordan slippers, the robber jumped several fences and made his way into the sea near Bella Vista Community.
Police were called to the scene and they quickly nabbed him.
A search of his bag only led to the discovery of a lock cutter.
He remains detained by Belama Police.
