38-year-old Juanito Cowo and his 19-year-old common-law wife Jessica Mena were held up at gunpoint last night in Corozal. According to police reports, the couple was with their two year old child and had just reached home when the incident occurred. Mena was held up first while she was opening the door to their home. Meanwhile, Cowo who was getting their child from the vehicle, was pulled from the car and the perpetrator pointed a gun to his head demanding money. Fearing for his life and the safety of his family, Cowo handed over all the money he had and his firearm. The culprits then made good their escape with Cowo’s money ; $18,000 pesos and US currency , and his 9mm firearm. Police investigations continue.
