Guatemalan Bandidos Hit Couple at El Pilar

Meanwhile, in the El Pilar area of San Ignacio Town a few hours earlier, a group of five bandits, believed to be Guatemalan nationals, robbed a couple of cash and an assortment of items from their place of business.  According to fifty-two-year-old Betty Cruz of Bullet Tree Village, the men, armed with assault rifles and handguns, approached her husband, fifty-seven-year-old Ruben Diaz and demanded money.  Fearing for his life, Diaz handed over one thousand dollars in cash, two power saws, a converter and an array of food items.  Additionally, the thieves made off with three security cameras that were installed on the building, along with a pair of solar panels.  They then made good their escaping heading in a westerly direction.
