A man heading to the capital’s Prampi Makara market on Wednesday to pick up some goods never got a chance to spend his money.
Instead, he found himself down $100 and without a single shopping bag in hand after he was mugged at gunpoint on the way to the bazaar.
Police said the thief warned he would shoot unless the victim accompanied him to a quiet lane. Once there, he shouted for help. The thief panicked, grabbed the victim’s wallet and phone, and fled. DEUM AMPIL
