Four males brandishing a shotgun and cutlass raided a New Village, Castries residence last night, Nov. 16 about 9:30 and robbed the occupants, including children.
The gangsters fired a shot at the victims as they fled.
No one was injured but two children, no older than nine years old, were left traumatized.
According to a resident, 50 cents was taken from one of the children.
“His mother said he peed on him and the other brother eased his bowels. He had to hold his poop in his hands,” a resident said.
Two government-issued laptops, along with an undisclosed amount of money, cell phones and jewelry were taken by the robbers.
“Everyone who was outside in the yard got robbed and when they were done they fired a shot in the people’s direction,” a resident said. “It hurts. It’s like I am seeing my child at that age going through that. Those guys are too serious.”
According to residents, three of the robbers partially covered their faces with rags. The other was unmasked.
No one has been arrested.
