Sandiford-Garner tells of attack
HOARSE, BRUISED and angry Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Irene Sandiford-Garner, recounted her face to face encounter with a masked, knife weilding robber last night.
The attack took place in the car-park of the Supercentre supermarket at Warrens, St Michael, just after 9 p.m. The assailant, who she described as a “young male” made off with the only item he wanted – a Blackberry cellular phone.
Less than 24 hours after the vicious ordeal, Sandiford-Garner who fought for her life said:?“I thank God for my spared, kept and preserved life. I?imagine how it could be other wise because it was only Him out there with me”.
Sitting at her Cane Garden, St Thomas, home this afternoon, Garner spoke bravely about the ordeal, vociferously condemning the attack, which she said was done by a young male .
She said she had stopped at the supermarket to pick up a few items when a young man wearing a hoodie and a scarf, jumped her while she was sitting in her car.
