Two elderly Canadian women were robbed and beaten in Corozal Town. The incident happened on April 7, but the Belize Police Department has not issued any official report on the matter. Love News understands however that the women, one of them the proprietor of a hotel and restaurant in Corozal Town had driven to one of their homes shortly after closing shop. The women parked in front of the house for several minutes and ensured no one was around before the business owner exited the vehicle.

The business owner received eleven stitches.
