Haiti – Insecurity : Bloody Friday evening in Petit-Goâve
Friday, April 30, around 8:00 p.m. on street Benoit, 3 armed men wearing balaclavas burglarized Pasteur Aimable Mathieu’s shop, leaving with 50,000 Gourdes. A woman standing in front of Pasteur’s shop was ransomed by the bandits before they robbed Léfils’ shop where they stole large sums of money and other valuables.
On their way, the bandits shot and killed a Taxi moto driver Raymond Bertin (30) and shot in the back a young 18-year-old boy, Mario Noncirel who was in front of his house and who was transferred urgently to Port au Prince.
It is the consternation on the side of the population.
Pasteur Mathieu condemned this act and pointed the finger at certain young people in the area who would be part of a gang. He also denounced a woman from Rue Benoit “Manman Baz” who would host the bandits at her home, saying “It was not men from other parts of the country who carried out the coup but a local gang” demanding a police presence at the level of this urban peripheral district.
