The woman told Police that on Wednesday, the incident occurred while riding her bicycle about 2 miles from Corozal Town. She was approached from behind by a Hispanic male person on a bicycle who started to poke her with a stick in an attempt to get her off the road and into the bushes.
The man then tried to grab her purse which she had in the basket of her bicycle. The woman managed to hit him, causing him to fall behind, while she rode faster and called out to her husband. She then saw the same person coming back, this time along with an accomplice.
The two were on separate bicycles and as they were about to catch up with her, her husband arrived at the area. That’s when the assailants ran into the bushes leaving behind their bicycles. Police conducted extensive searches in the area and informed the neighborhood watch group in the area but the men were not found. Investigation continues.
