A teenager is the latest victim of an aggravated robbery, during which $500 was stolen from her bag.
According to reports, a 19-year-old resident of Table Hill Gordon, Liberta, was accosted by two males who were in a silver Toyota Vitz motorcar. During the robbery, the woman was wounded and was later treated at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre.
Reportedly, she is familiar with at least one of the perpetrators, said to be a Jamaican national who resides in Golden Grove.
According to the victim, she was walking on the main road in Table Hill Gordon when the vehicle pulled up alongside her. She says the driver, whom she knows, pulled her into the car and placed her in the front passenger seat.
There was another person on the back seat of the vehicle and he was wearing a hooded shirt, the woman says.
She reports that she heard the cranking sound of a gun, and then the passenger hit her on both sides of the head with a hard object. The driver, meanwhile, used his fists and punched her all over the body and also choked her, the victim says.
Further reports say the attackers attempted to transport the young woman to another location. But when they stopped the vehicle – apparently to beat her again – she quickly opened the door, jumped out of the car, and ran into a nearby yard.
This incident reportedly occurred at about 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 3.
