“Benque Police visited Border Road where they visited Lighthouse Restaurant where they spoke to the proprietor, a thirty-eight-year-old Belizean, who reported that while he was inside the restaurant along with another person, two male persons of Hispanic descent entered the restaurant pretending to be purchasing food items. While inside the shop, a male person pointed a firearm and demanded money from them. As a result he handed over a small amount of cash and the person left with four fry chickens from the establishment. Fortunately no one was injured and thereafter the male persons made good their escape. No one has been detained and police are looking at the description of the male persons.”
