After disturbing news of two downtown businesses being burglarized over the weekend and losing a large amount of money in electrical equipment, it was more disturbing to learn that a senior citizen was the victim of a robbery early this morning, Friday, April 20, 2012.
According to reports, at about 8:00a.m. this morning Mr. Felix Ayuso left the Caribbean Depot Office with a bag of money set for deposit to the bank. Mr. Ayuso was about to exit the compound when he noticed that a male person in a bicycle was following him. The man then proceeded to jump into the passenger’s seat of the golf cart and pushed Mr. Ayuso off the golf cart. The assailant took with him the deposit bag which was wrapped in a towel and managed to escape.
Luckily Mr. Ayuso was not injured, but shaken up a bit by the incident. A total of approximately $40,000 in cash and checks was stolen. Mr. Ayuso described his assailant to be a Hispanic male person of short stature in his late 20’s and having a mustache. More on this story as information becomes available. Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated and reports can be made at the San Pedro Police Department.
