Couple escapes bandit's bullets

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.
