Two women who were onboard a minivan which crashed in the Ratho Mill area yesterday, were robbed on Thursday night.
Both ladies who hail from Bequia were on their way from the Stubbs Poly-Clinic yesterday, and heading into Kingstown when the vehicular accident occurred.
Nadia Gooding and Nadine Gooding, suffered injuries in the crash and were brieftly hospitalized. Upon release, the Grandmother and Granddaughter made their way to the Peace Memorial Hall bus stop awaiting a ride to stay with family members for the night.
Just after 9pm, while awaiting transportation, two unknown assailants robbed the women of their bags including i.d’s and money. The men reportedly wore masks and crept up behind the women, relieving them of their bags. No weapons were reportedly used in the assault.
The women were not hurt physically during the robbery, but were left severely traumatized, compounded by the effects of battering they suffered in the minibus crash earlier that evening.
