Crime — 27 June 2014 — by Albert J. Ciego

The D-Mundo company of Belmopan is out of $547 in cash after their collector was robbed by a thief who punched him in the left side of the face and escaped with the company bag containing the cash and company documents.

The incident occurred at about 4:00 Friday afternoon on the road in the Rivera area of Belmopan.

The collector told police that at about 4:00 Friday afternoon he was travelling on his motorcycle on the road in the Rivera area when he slowed down for a hump on the road.

When the collector did so, however, a man wearing a rag over his face came out of the bushes and pointed a gun at him. The robber then came up and pulled away the bag from around his right shoulder. In the bag were some cards, receipts and $547 in cash, all belonging to the company.

The gunman then punched him on the left side of his face and escaped in the bush.

Police are investigating.
