Armed Robbers Attack PMDC Nat. Womenís Leader

The National Womenís Leader of the Peopleís Movement for Democratic Change (PMDC), Madam Roselyn Macarthy was in the early hours of Monday 9tth August 2010 at about 2:00am attacked by unidentified armed robbers on their way to her Sawi Drive residence, Brookfields in western Freetown.


Speaking of her ordeal to the Awareness Times at dawn on Monday, the PMDC Womenís leader explained how she was heading home with three other people when about six armed men materialized from nowhere and demanded them to disembark from the vehicle. She said they then ordered them to surrender all what they had in their possession ďWe refused to come down but my sister who was so scary decided to hand over her purse which I swiftly snatched and sped off.¬† But the armed robbers continued to hang on the vehicle until one of them smashed the side screen and commanded me to stop the vehicle but I refused,Ē she disclosed.¬† She said after insistently blaring at the horn coupled with the loud screams of her sisters, the thieves finally gave up and ran away as people became alerted.

 

She however, lamented over the poor response by the police when she rushed to the Adelaide Street Police Station where she said there was only two officers on duty. ďThey told me they could do nothing except if I could contact the Central Police Station which we did but at Central Police, they complained of lack of transport means as the only patrol vehicle they had was out,Ē she said, while alleging that they even demanded the sum of Le 50,000 (Fifty thousand Leones) from her if she needed police escort.

 

She therefore used this medium to call on the president to look in to the increase in armed robbery in the country in recent times, especially when the police are lethargic in pursuing them at night.


However, when contacted, one Inspector Musa in the Operations

Department at Central Police informed that police have already arrested one of the suspected armed robbers who is now helping them in their investigations. He assured that they would do all they could to arrest the other culprits.
