Young businesswoman is traumatized by masked and armed intruder who robbed her and then committed an indecent act


REAL MEWS:A young woman remains traumatized after a masked and armed man broke into her home, robbed her of cash, and then engaged in a sexual offence.

She tells REAL News that she was awakened from sleep by a noise, and opened her eyes to see a bright light shining in her face.  Thoughts of escape crossed her mind, she says, but she was deterred by the knife that the ski-mask-wearing intruder carried.

The self-employed woman says the man demanded cash and took all that she had in her handbag nearby.

However, instead of leaving with his loot, he then demanded that the woman remove her nightwear.  Assuring her that he did not intend to rape her, the intruder then proceeded to masturbate while she lay unclothed on her bed.

Subsequent investigation revealed that he had gained entry to the house through a small window that had been left open – forcing himself through a space so small, the woman says, that not even she could get through it.

Now, the victim tells REAL News, she is not only afraid after the ordeal, but upset that the Police have not raised an alarm, alerting other females living on their own.

From her own inquiries, the businesswoman says, she learned that several women in the Golden Grove, Creekside and Gray Hill areas have had similar experiences – particularly being blinded by a bright light – and have all made reports.

Accordingly, she is speculating that a serial offender might be at work.

“I think it’s important for women to know this is happening, so they can take extra precautions,” she says, adding that she cannot understand why the police have not – up to now – made the matter a national issue.

Meanwhile, two women were reportedly able to scare intruders from their respective homes after their security was breached by unknown men.

A Golden Grove Extension woman reported to the Grays Farm Police Station that she was awakened by a man coming through her bedroom window.

She says she went to bed at about 11 p.m. on February 5 and fell asleep shortly after. However, at about 1:07 a.m. the following morning, she was alerted by the rustling of a plastic bag next to her northern bedroom window.

She reports that she opened her eyes and saw the upper portion of a man’s body climbing through the bedroom window. She screamed, and the intruder quickly climbed back outside, jumped a western fence, and ran off in an easterly direction.

The intruder is described as being of a slim build and dark in complexion; he was wearing a white hooded shirt, a pair of blue pants, and his hair appeared to be twisted.

Reportedly the perpetrator had removed three screens: from the kitchen window, a southwest bedroom window, and from a northwest bedroom window.

Apparently, he managed to insert a hand through the latter window and removed a comb bag and make-up kit. He was attempting to enter the house from the southwest bedroom window, when he was interrupted by the resident.

All the windows of the house were reportedly closed but not locked.

A search was carried out for the missing items and they were found by a water tank on the northern side of the yard.

Meanwhile, another Golden Grove woman reported to the Station that her house had been broken into.

Reports say the woman was in her bedroom at about 1:30 a.m. on February 6, when she heard a noise from the back bedroom. She went to investigate and heard footsteps walking out of her house.

It appeared that the intruder had opened an eastern window, which was closed but not locked, and gained entry into the house. However, any further offences were thwarted when he was disturbed by the owner.

  1. You left window open… You want police warn people.. where does your individual responsibility lie?

    • What do you mean? She’s where she lives. If I leave a window open, does it give anyone the right to come in there and they don’t live there. Such a load a shit.

    • Don’t be foolish. So if I leave my place open, does that give a person g he right to invade my privacy?

    • Are you dumb? So the fact I have a window open that I forgot to close gives someone the right to rob and potentially assault me? Hope you never leave your pant zip open for any gays to randomly grab your limp ass peepee and assault you

      • You are all going to learn,you must lock your windows and doors,dont make yourself vulnerable,these are the time we live in,simple de papaya

    • Windows left unlocked surely is not the problem.
      Antiguans were accustomed to leaving all their windows and doors unlocked ad a matter of fact we policemen did not carry fire arms and prisoners could be seen on the street of St John’s running errands.. Antigua was the most peaceful place.

      Then the IRESPONSIBLE ALP administration encouraged mass migration and in a flash everything changed. History is important to understanding how we got to this point.

      Then the new migrants brought with them their culture of crime and violence. Since then our society has not been the same. Our society started to produce citizens that are heartless and inconsiderate.
      So if Antiguans has a difficulty to lock doors and windows it’s because it’s their inherent culture. I agree times have changed but the POLITICIANS are solely responsible for the change..

      Antigua was a safe place for our females until POLITICIANS wanted power at any cost. So they sacrificed our security for their power trip.🙏🏿

      • So is it safe to say from your comment that all the crimes happening in North America and Europe for example are being committed by immigrants many of whom are from the Caribbean for example?

        • Allow North America and Europe to speak for themselves. I know nothing about those places.

          However there is evidence to prove my theory.
          See crime rate before mass migration and compare it to the rate after.

          I fully understand your point of view because the TRUTH is unbelievable to those that are culpable.

      • Speak,the absolute truth,those times were so peaceful,because politicians wanted power at any cost,we are so unsafe on our own island..what a shame

      • Where are the facts to suggest these crimes are committed by immigrants? You will be surprise it is your own family. Immigrants are hard working people. They hustle to make ends meet. So please guys direct your readers to where the data on crime can be found

        • @ALgee no where in my statement did l say immigrants were commiting crime. Transfer of crime know how etc took place. When they came and saw the petty stuff that was taking place they introduce our people on how it is done in their country……Not blaming the immigrants at all the POLITICIANS are the ones to be blamed. Get it straight.

    • It’s a reminder by the police to do so. Sometimes the house is hot and one forget to loch the windows . Yrs, no harm in police reminding us WOMEN. What’s your issue?

  2. You all need some GOOOOOOOOD lashing who goes to bed and left their security unsecured especially living alone? Now bcz of your negligence your expecting police to tell you all to LOCK your windows come on ladies u don’t need anyone to tell u to lock your windows.
    And worst it’s winter not summer so why would u leave your windows OPEN


  3. If your locks are spoiled use a piece of qood/stick and create a wedge to the top and that will prevent the bottom one from pushing.

  4. What is going in my home,Antigua? I remembered when persons would leave their
    windows opened and go into Town. They would return to find their homes the way they left it,untouched. Have we become more thiefer and heartless towards one another now than before. Just hoping someone is not killed by one of those intruders during one of those breakings.

  5. @ Melchsadistic. I am willing to bet, migration or not, MOST of the crimes committed, are by NATURAL BORN ANTIGUANS.. Therein lies one problem. Always looking for something or someone to blame, turning a blind eye to the real problem- all of these young people running around, who can now legally smoke herb, who live in homes that are not structured AND no role models for them to emulate.

    • @Caribbean lady…while they may be “natural born Antiguans, Barbudans and REDONDANS, the culture which they are now immersed in is not, and I repeat, it’s not of the Antigua, Barbuda and Redonda culture which was present 30 – 40 years ago.
      If we really want to do a spread sheet of the breakdown of our present criminals through family lineage, family’s original roots(the place of birth/Nationality) many would be presently surprised, as to the statistics.

      At this juncture, we need proactive solutions based upon international norms/habits(those which are negative) to set policies in place, to adjusts the negative directions which OUR Culture. The #slippery_slope to perdition.

    • Caribbean lady if your up it check and see the nationality of all the grown men having sex with their daughters Dominican, Guyanese, and Jamaicans. No other Caribbean immigrants as far as I am aware now do a search in those three countries and observe how prevalent that type of crime is in those countries. After you would have done that would you accept your findings as a truth?
      Again not blaming any immigrant the POLITICIANS have a RESPONSIBILITY to secure life, person, possession, and property.

  6. It’s funny, because the police know exactly who the individual is who is committing this type of crime. Same report being made from women in Hatton and golden grove area. Same description of the person responsible. “American accent?” Yes… they know where he lives too. Let’s see how long before they make an arrest.

  7. We can take our Island by declaring war against criminals. Check youtube videos on how to setup traps on windows
