The robbers who took their time, burgled shops, supermarkets, smashed windscreens of cars parked, carefully avoiding houses they know they can be caught with their security despite the Eid holiday.
The robbers who carted away many valuables including money, phones, laptops etc were said to have used a machete on a 25 year old man making him to sustain injury in his head and back but was quickly taken to a nearby hospital immediately the robbers left.
