By BBN Staff: Bowen and Bowen’s Ladyville compound was robbed last night, but one of the two perpetrators was shot during the incident.
Two men wearing B&B uniforms, one armed with a handgun, entered the office around 6:40 p.m. and demanded money from a sales clerk. One of the assailants took several envelopes containing an undisclosed amount of cash while the other tied up the staff.
The security officer on the scene approached the robbers pulled out his firearm and told them to leave when a struggle ensued. The robbers managed to overpower the guard and escape, taking his gun along with them; however, sometime shortly after, police found one of the perpetrators in a bushy area on the Merage Road, wearing nothing but boxers and suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg.
The robber was taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for treatment.
Investigations into the matter are ongoing.
