A 74-YEAR-OLD BARBADIAN HOUSEWIFE, frozen by fear, and blinded by a sheet placed over her head, begged gun-toting criminals to spare her life last week.

The woman, who requested anonymity for her and her family, relived the ordeal which she said lasted for about 15 minutes at her St George home, but seemed like a lifetime.

The Royal Barbados Police Force is searching for the bandits. That crime may be connected to two more, which occurred in Frere Pilgrim, Christ Church, and Wanstead Heights, St James, on Monday.

The St George woman revealed that after the two armed men forced their way into her home on March 23, one wearing a mask told her not to look at the other.
