Corozal Armed Robbery Caught on Camera

Two armed men walked into a store in Corozal Town on Tuesday night, held up the cashier and made away with the money in the register. The robbers also robbed and assaulted two customers inside the grocery store. The brazen robbery lasted about a minute and it was all caught on camera. Police are looking for the duo, who concealed their faces behind rags. Here is Hipolito Novelo with a report.

Camera one shows both robbers casually entering Huan Huan Store located on College Road in Corozal Town. The first is seen wearing a red cap and the second, a few feet behind him, is wearing a black hat. Both man used rags to conceal their faces. Camera two shows the first robber walking into the store, scouting out the counter and the cashier. The second assailant walks to the refrigeration area and in a matter a seconds the first robber pulls out a gun and points it to the cashier. By this time, the second robber quickly walks behind the counter and snatches an undisclosed amount of money from the register.  One customer is beaten and kicked and others are ordered to the ground.  Those persons outside the store realize what is happening and flee, except for two men. While the second robber takes all the money in the register, the first robber walks outside the store and robs the two men.  In just about a minute, the crime is done and the men escape on foot.  Reporting for News Five, I am Hipolito Novelo.
