By Benjamin Flowers: A Stann Creek businessman was assaulted during a robbery attempt at his company yesterday.
Police say that around 9:40 a.m., 38-year-old Nelson Montalvo was at Montalva Construction Company near the lagoon side in Seine Bight Village when he was informed that two men were looking for him.
When he went out to see who it was, he found two men one of them pointing a gun at him and demanding money.
Montalva told the culprits that he didn’t have any money and closed the sliding window, taking cover behind a cement wall, when he heard shots firing. The men entered the building through a sliding door and a struggle ensued.
During the struggle, one of the culprits hit Montalvo twice on the head with the firearm, then the men jumped onto a black motorcycle and escaped without taking anything.
Police are investigating.
