A female employee of the Bank of Saint Lucia (BOSL) who stood up to armed bandits yesterday, has lived to tell the tale.
Well informed sources told the Times that the women left the bank at about 4:30 PM yesterday and was held at gun point by two men as she was about to enter her vehicle.
According to information, the men tried to force the woman to enter the vehicle, evidently to shift the scene of the crime.
However it is reported that the BOSL employee stood her ground.
“I am not going anywhere, so you can kill me here,” the courageous female is reported to have declared.
Apparently taken aback by her boldness, the men grabbed her bag, laptop computer and other possessions and escaped.
A report has since been made to the police.
Sources have told the Times that the victim is still shaken by the experience.
