Corozal Police are investigating a robbery of a Chinese-owned store on College Road in Corozal Town that occurred in broad daylight on Sunday, September 24th.
Reports are that about 3:30pm, store-owner of Huan Huan Supermarket, 46 year old Meinyan Wu, a naturalized Belizean, was at her store when two male persons wearing masks and dressed in dark clothing entered her business.
One of the men, who was armed with a knife, ran behind the counter while the other who appeared to be armed with a pistol, remained by the door. Reports we received is that a Police officer standing guard at the store was forced to the ground and tied up along with the store owner. The armed robber then went behind the counter and took approximately $2,200 from the cash register and two cell phones. The men then climbed on bicycles and rode away.
The store is equipped with surveillance camera, but our sources indicate that the Police have been having difficulty with the quality of the video captured by it to make out the identity of the assailants.
