UPDATE: Man shot as he tries to help woman who was being robbed


A man who rushed to the defense of a woman who was being robbed was shot by the alleged assailants.

The unnamed man was taken to Mount St. John’s Medical Centre following an incident at a food shop in Hilda Davis Drive.

Two young men on a bicycle reportedly approached the shop and robbed the female attendant of an undisclosed sum of money along with jewellery.

When she screamed for help a man who was nearby came to her assistance. He is believed to have been shot in the back before the attackers fled the scene.

The man’s injuries are said to be non-life-threatening and he is currently in stable condition in hospital.

Officers investigating the incident are appealing for eyewitnesses or anyone with information to call CID at 462-3913.

  1. Very unfortunate that someone got hurt. I hope he recovers speedily.

    Unfortunately these are the kind of events that may increase given current conditions. Pick up any sociology text or listen to the right Tanya Stephens and you will see the link.

    Worse yet when Ministers like Melford wrongfully firing people and won’t release their money. It’s like the government is pushing and provoking its own to these kind of acts.

    Desperate times. Desperate acts.

    • Really? That’s the best they can come up with? Business owners need to wise up and go get themselves license guns and if they not giving them the license then get one of the ones that the robber man dem a come with And when ppl defend what they work hard for the law need not harass ppl. The bible say a thief come to steal kill and destroy. Dont let them kill you when they come kill dem if u get a chance.

  2. Get those two idiots and lock them up. Antigua must not cave into these low lifes. I hope somebody will give them a good ass whipping for starters. This people will simply not put up with these lawbreakers. Go get ’em.

  3. Criminal get bolder because they see the police force is a joke! Wasn’t it a month back the police’s were asking for more money? I don’t know why cause they do nothing. Oh they want to be paid for dancing Jerusalem in the streets. What a joke the government, judicial and police establishment are.
    Get rich off of poor people back.
