Second home invasion in GT this week
The break-in occurred at George Town Courts, off Eastern Avenue.
Police said the woman was awakened by “rumbling noises” in her bedroom where a burglar appeared to be rummaging through her drawers.
The woman said she shouted twice at the burglar, who fled after he was yelled at for the second time.
The suspect was described as being short, with a light complexion and a beard. He wore a green t-shirt, a yellow pants, and he had a white t-shirt on his head.
Items stolen were two Jamaican passports, one gold chain and one bracelet, according to police.
Police said the burglar did not threaten the victim; there was no physical contact between the burglar and the victim, and there were no physical injuries.
A George Town resident awoke just before midnight Monday to find an unknown man entering the bedroom.
Police said the suspect was armed with a knife and asked for cash, then searched the room – taking three wrist-watches, a tool kit and a bag that contained some bank cards.
The break-in happened on Spring Lane near Bodden Road, located between Eastern Avenue and the George Town waterfront.
Again, there was no physical contact with the victim and the suspect got away from the scene on foot, police said.
The suspect description in the Monday night burglary is entirely different to the one that happened Thursday morning.
