By Aaron Humes: Early this morning, a Belize City couple was held up at gunpoint, and in the case of the man, he was shot at and had his cell phone stolen.
According to police, Alexander Gladden was with a female friend at a Belize City address when two men known to him interrupted their private time and held them up with a nine-millimetre pistol.
Gladden handed over a cell phone valued at $250 to the man holding the firearm but apparently unsatisfied there was then a struggle between them and he decided to try to reach the Mahogany Street Precinct 2 Police Sub-Station. On his way, he heard the sound of gunfire which turned out to be the robbers shooting at him, but no one was hurt.
The armed robbers are being sought by police as their investigations continue.
