Quick thinking saved the lives of Marlon Sieuraj and Curtisha Laing after they were ambushed by robbers in front of their home on Saturday night.
Police investigators said the couple, both aged 31 of Inverness Road, Borde Narve, were getting out of their green Wingroad around 10.30 pm Saturday when four men ran up to them.
One of the men reportedly began firing at Sieuraj, who ran into some bushes nearby.
The other attempted to snatch Laing by hitting her on the leg but she managed to scamper back into the car and lock the door.
The attackers pounded on the back glass of the car while Laing called the police.
The men then ran off and escaped in a waiting car.
Police are treating the incident as an attempted robbery. Sgt Maloo of the Ste Madeleine police station is continuing investigations.
