Three individuals became the victims of crime last evening in the Kingstown Park community, after three men brandishings guns entered a community shop.
Wendy Bowman, a 54-year Shopkeeper and Andy Gill, a 25-year-old Male Attendant, both of Kingstown Park, were at Bowman’s shop when three men entered with guns and demanded money.
The shop was ransacked in the process. The men escaped with an unknown sum of money and a cellphone belonging to Bowman.
Both Bowman and Gill received wounds to their head from the butt of the guns. They are in stable condition.
