Teenager tried to rob arcade, but owner’s game hand was quick

A sixteen year old minor is tonight recovering from a stab wound to the abdomen. But he is no victim; the teen attempted to rob Arcade World on Freetown Road at around twenty minutes past ten o’clock on Tuesday night. The manager, Francisco Rodriguez reported that he was at the arcade along with a co-worker when the minor entered, armed with a knife and demanded money. But Rodriguez also had a knife, which he used to stab the assailant during a struggle. After the foiled robbery attempt, the minor had to be rushed to the KHMH for treatment.

    the stab should have been fatal, this would have meant one less criminal in the streets…the owner would not have faced charges because the culprit also had a knife and the owner’s life was in danger…

    LOL

    hopefully an armada of germs at the KHMH will “take care” of this guy

    IT SOUNDS MORE PROMISING THAT PEOPLE ARE TAKING THINGS SERIOUSLY, WE CANNOT DEPEND ONLY FROM THE POLICE SINCE THEY ARE EVEN LESS TRAINED THAN A CIVILIAN FOR SUCH THINGS.
    JUST LIKE THE NEWS I READ A FEW MINUTE IN THE U.S A LADY SHOT THE INTRUDER AND WILL NOT BE CHARGE FOR THAT SINCE BEFORE SHE DID SHE CALLED 911 AND SHE WAS GIVEN ADVICE HOW TO DEFEND HER SELF WITH HER OWN SHOTGUN.
    I BELIEVE BELIZE SHOULD START TELLING CIVILIANS THAT INTRUDERS ARE LEGIBLE TO GET KILLED ONCE THEY PUT THE OWNER OF THE HOUSE AT LIFE RISK WITH OUT FACING COURT CASE.

    Mr Rodriguez is a HERO!! As good & law abiding citizens of this nation, we should fight back & liberate this nation from those evil-minded ……. To the parents of the 16 year old: Be a positive role model in his life NOW before it’s too late. He’s desperately in need of positive influence; otherwise, he’ll end up killing someone or he being killed. Remember, he had learned his lesson this time. And so the next time he’s going to rob with a gun & not a knife. I guess you know what the outcome would be like.
