An employee of Coral Cable Vision (CCV) was wounded this afternoon, Thursday, December 04, 2014, in downtown San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize, as he attempted to detain a robber who had just stolen items from World Class Fashion Store on Pescador Drive (middle street).
According to eye witness reports, four persons were sitting across the store when one of them entered the store around 1:30p.m. and stole some items. As the robber attempted to leave the area, an employee of Coral Cable Vision, located two doors down from the store, was made aware of the robbery attempt and was able to detain the robber. It was during the struggle that the robber was able to retrieve his gun and shoot the CCV employed on the leg, just above the knee.
The robber was not able to make an escape as he was then detained by the store owner, until he was apprehended by San Pedro Police Officers. The three other men outside the store had left the scene before the police had arrived.
CCV employee, Carlos Najera, was immediately transported to the San Pedro Poly Clinic for medical attention after he was treated on the scene by Dr. Giovanni Solorzano. More details will be made available as Police continue their investigation and file their report.
