An elderly woman of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye,  is recuperating from a harrowing experience she went through earlier this week. The 70-year-old, woman told police that she was on her way home at around nine thirty on Monday night when a man on a bicycle approached her and dragged her into an empty overgrown lot on Coco Plum Street and began physically assaulting her.  The woman says she was punched in the face, on her legs and subsequently lost consciousness.  When she awoke, the woman reported that her blouse was torn and her underwear had been removed and was around her left leg.  The man escaped prior to her regaining consciousness.  Investigations into the disturbing incident are ongoing.
