“He was on Baracat Street at a residence speaking to one of his sons on a veranda when he heard his son shout out, bwai weh di go on with unu. He turned around quickly and saw two men fast approaching with what appeared to be a nine-millimetre pistol. He is saying that the man with the pistol instructed his accomplice to search them and take everything that they had. This was done and an undisclosed amount of cash was taken away from him and his son.”
