Intruder told woman “keep quiet and don’t move” as he robbed her in her own home


A 42-year-old woman came face to face with a man who had breached her home in search of money.

The Nut Grove resident telephoned the Grays Farm Police Station and reported the incident.

Reportedly, the victim told officers she had been in her bedroom when the door was pushed open and a light was pointed in her face.

She then heard a male voice say, “Keep quiet and don’t move.”

Further reports say the intruder took her bag from the closet, searched it, and stole $40.

He then ransacked a chest of drawers where he reportedly found a black purse containing $400 in Canadian currency and US$200, which he also pocketed.

The man then exited the house through the kitchen door and ran off in a southerly direction.

The police reportedly made checks around the house and discovered where the intruder had gained entry.

Reportedly, he had used a flat object to push through the keyhole of a kitchen door that was not properly secured.

The alleged house-breaker is described as short, dark in complexion, and of a slim build.

A search for anyone fitting the description was carried out in the area but was not successful.

This offence reportedly occurred at about 3:45 a.m. on April 19.

  1. It now goes without saying that Antigua needs much more police presence at night and the small hours of the morning.

    If this had at the police commissioner’s or Gaston Browne’s hone then something would be done.


    • There are so many persons in the Police Force but it seems most only work a 9 to 5 and will come out in their numbers for drugs.

      The could make good money at nights for the nonsense that just happen on our roads with these drivers smh and the the theif them that roam our streets.
