Robbed at bus stop
Police were up to late last night looking for a man who assaulted and robbed a woman in broad daylight.
Sade Harris, a 21-year-old hostess of Chefette Restaurants, was at a bus stop on Spooner’s Hill, St Michael, around midday when a man suddenly assaulted her and made off with her handbag.
Patrina Yearwood, of Long Gap, in a nearby district, said the robber punched Harris to the ground when the young woman held on to her handbag tightly.
“I can’t believe it, but he was sitting at the bus stop as well and then suddenly pounced on the young lady, cuffing her to the ground and then running off with her handbag,” Yearwood told the DAILY NATION.
Harris complained of pain in the chest and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance for treatment.
Her handbag reportedly contained money and a number of personal items. (TS)
