Armed robber “gun-butts” Chinese businesswoman for ten grand U.S.

A robber got away with ten thousand U.S. dollars on Wednesday evening after he held up a businesswoman in Belize City. Police say that the woman was heading home for the day when an armed man held her up in the Golden Bay parking lot. There are no surveillance cameras in the compound and while security guards are at the Golden Bay establishment, they were all inside when the robbery happened. Police say that they are looking at angles, even at the prospect that someone may have known the woman’s routine and that she was carrying the cash.
