Bus station robbed, guard hurt

Story Picture
Sixty-two year old Ethelbert Worrell lies in a serious condition tonight at the KHMH, after he was beaten in the course of a robbery. Worrell, the security guard at Venus Bus lines in Belize City, which also houses the Z-Line office, says he was attacked by two men around two this morning.

Ethelbert Worrell, Robbery Victim

“A gentleman came by the gate and told me he wanted a room about one-thirty, two o’clock. When I listen, another man came from out of the terminal and tackled me. He told me he wanted to handcuff me. He then hit me with the same bottle that I had fanta in. I heard he broke up Z-Line’s place too, that means he was looking for money”

“When he knocked you in the head, what happened? Did you know where he went after that?”

“I don’t know because I get to frightened, I jump the fence and ran to the police station. That happened about two-thirty, three this morning.”

?What condition are you in right now??

Ethelbert Worrell

“Well, my head hurt me bad because he hit me about two times in the head. Then my hands hurt too. He also knock me in the eye, my eyes are swollen.”

The robbers must have been disappointed to find that the iron chest they stole from Z-Line contained two thousand dollars worth of designer perfumes and seven ticket books ? no cash. Worrell is suffering from a skull fracture and bleeding on the brain as a result of his beating.
