“Two women are lucky to be alive following an armed robbery in Cotton Tree Village. According to Romelia Dominguez, on Tuesday afternoon June 23 sometime around 1:30, she was working inside Guerra’s shop when she was approached by two dark skinned male persons armed with fire arms. One of the male persons then jumped over the counter and hit her to the head where she fell to the ground unconscious. The other male person then ran inside the house to the back of the kitchen, where 62 year old Maria Guerra the owner of the shop was and demanded money and jewelry. A struggle ensued between Guerra and her attacker where she was stabbed to the right side of her back. She tried to run for her life and at that point she was shot to the right side of her neck. Stolen from Guerra was an undisclosed amount of money and a cell phone. Guerra was rushed to the Western Regional Hospital where she is listed in a stable condition while her worker Romelia Dominguez received a large cut wound to the top of the head. She was treated and later released.”
