Two teenagers, a 15 year old and a 16 year old, have been detained by police following an armed robbery in Belize City yesterday morning. 46-year-old Weibo Liang, a businessman of West Canal, reported that at about 11:50 a.m., as he opened the door for his shop – Long Lucky shop, he was approached from behind by two male persons.
One pointed a hand gun at his head and demanded money, while the other person hit him on the face and searched his pockets. They then reportedly threatened his daughter who handed over an unknown amount of cash.
Both male persons then exited the store and made good their escape. However, quick response by police resulted in the apprehension of the two teenage suspects.
Police recovered $75.00 in an empty lot and charges are expected to be filed against the minors.
