By Aaron Humes: Police are investigating a reported robbery of an Orange Walk Town salesman in Belize City late this morning.
According to police, Chandra Prakash, an Indian National of Belize-Corozal Road, Orange Walk Town, reported that he was on a motorcycle doing cash pickups at CK Supermarket on Mahogany Street, Belize City when as he came out of the Supermarket he was approached by two dark-skinned men riding separate bicycles.
Prakash said one of the men carried a firearm, which he pointed at him and demanded the bag. Fearing for his life, he allowed the other man to take his black knapsack bag containing $25,000 in cash, $15,000 in cheques, and a black Apple brand iPad, value unknown.
Both men escaped, riding away in separate directions on Mahogany Street. Police investigations continue at this time.
