policeA well-known businessman was targeted by armed robbers on Friday night shortly after closing hours. According to authorities, 49 year old Raju Punjabi, businessman of Belize Corozal Road, reported that on the night of Friday December 19th, at 8:30, after closing his business place namely SP Warehouse situated on Progress Street, he went to drop off his worker in his Prado vehicle.


On arrival in front of his worker’s house situated on Bishop Martin Street, he decided to walk his worker inside her house, where they spoke for about 20 minutes, leaving his vehicle parked on the said street side. At the point where he walked back to his vehicle and reaching two feet away from where it was parked, he saw two male persons who had on white mask covering their face, with long sleeve shirt and cap, came running up to him.


One of the men reported Punjabi, had what appeared to be a hand gun which he pointed at him at the same time demanding money.

The other perpetrator walked up to Punjabi and proceeded to search his person, taking away his Galaxy S4 cell phone valued at $1400.00 which was in his right front pocket. Fearing for his life, Punjabi handed over the keys to his car where the money was kept. The male person then went into the vehicle and took out a black plastic bag containing a sum of $5335.00 in cash.

Punjabi told police that the second man who kept watch and stood beside him, stooped down by the rear wheel of his vehicle and fired two gun shots. Punjabi sustained a flesh wound above his left knee. The robbers then made good their escape with the money and cell phone. Police have no concrete leads and their investigation continues.
