Sirenian Bay Resort.

By Aaron Humes: The peace of a night on the beach in Placencia, Stann Creek District, was disturbed early this morning when four armed men frightened a group of tourists in their beds at Sirenian Bay Resort.

A family of eight were in bed around 12:40 a.m. when they were awakened by four masked men, armed with guns and knives. They were made to lie on the floor and the youngest, aged 18, tied up. The men then began asking for the owner of the resort, who they said they were looking for, but stole the youngest tourist’s iPhone Max Pro. No one was injured.

Police responded almost immediately and saw two men in front of the beach villa where the incident took place. The men opened fire and police responded, leading to a chase and exchange of gunfire along the beach front, however, no one was injured and the men fled in a waiting skiff. Investigations are underway.
