An elderly Belize City man was bound and robbed inside his own home just after eight o clock on Friday night. Sixty-three-year-old Preston White was at his apartment on Cesar Ridge Road when a man entered the compound and walked toward the back of the yard. Moments later the assailant ran up the stairs and forced white into the apartment at gunpoint. According to Senior Superintendent of Police Hilberto Romero, a second robber was involved.
Senior Supt. Hilberto Romero, Belize Police Department: “Police responded to an aggravated burglary report at #20 Caesar Ridge Road. Upon their arrival they spoke to Preston White, 63 years who reported that he was on his veranda when he was approached by a male person who pulled out a firearm and took him inside his house. Thereafter a second male person came in and he was tied up and they stole his cellular phone and they ransacked the house looking for other items. After that both male persons fled from the area.”
