Family scared as home stoned again

FOR THE SECOND TIME in two months, Carlin Bridgeman has been thrown into a state of panic and fear after rocks were thrown through a window of her house at Ashdeane Village, Black Rock, St Michael, shattering the glass.
When the SATURDAY SUN team visited her yesterday, 41-year-old Bridgeman pointed out broken glass strewn about the bedroom she shares with her 12-year-old son.
There was also a fallen burglar bar, which Bridgeman said fell from the window and hit her son in the head during the attack.
Yesterday’s incident occurred in the wee hours of the morning, Bridgeman said. She was awakened by a scream from her son after the rocks came through the window.
“My son holler out and run out the bedroom, and I just sit down there ’cause I was in shock. I could not believe this happen again,” Bridgeman said.
Recalling the earlier incident, she said that just before 4 a.m. on the day of the Foreday Morning Jam this year she was awakened by the sound of crashing glass.
Bridgeman said she was worried because on that occasion her son was cut on the stomach by the flying glass.
The upset woman has occupied the Urban Development Commission house for the past nine years.
She said: “I go to work and come home, me and nobody ’bout here don’t have any disagreements.”
Bridgeman said the police came and took away the rocks.
However, she said they informed her that nothing much could be done because there were no fingerprints.
Her neighbours are not “saying anything”, she reported. “Everybody is all hush-hush.”
Two of Bridgeman’s daughters, one of whom has a young child, live at the residence. They, too, said the incident had upset them. (LK)
