Venezuelan housekeeper tied up, robbed in San Fernando

A Venezuelan woman was tied up and robbed during a home invasion in San Fernando.

Police were told that the victim, a 36-year-old, was working as a housekeeper at a home along Desert Rose Crescent, Union Hall, when around 10.00 am on Wednesday, she observed a black motor vehicle pull up in front of the home.

Two men alighted from the car and stormed the house.

Police were told that the men pushed the victim, who was in the gallery at the time, into the living room of the house, where they bound her hands and feet.

They then proceeded to relieve her of her cash and valuables, including a handbag which contained $5,000 in cash.

The suspects then returned to the car and fled the scene.

The woman raised an alarm and a team of officers led by Cpl Steele visited the scene.

The 36-year-old was untied and taken for medical examination.
