This morning when I arrived at work, I saw on the white board written that 2 of my colleagues went to the police station and to the hospital. It involves students as they were from the student affair departments, I thought.
Later, I then asked another colleague why did they go to the specify mentioned places? And I was told, that one of my colleagues, the handbag got snatched and she was slashed in her left hand.
She came in the morning at 8 plus and she parked at the side lane, the usual place. She saw someone who's tall, dark and skinny standing at the side labe looking at her via her side mirror. She thought the guy just standing there, minding his own business.
As she was about to alight from her car, he approached her and stuck a knife at her side asking her to be quiet. Knowing that she being robbed, she held tightly her handbag. He continued to grab the bag and she continues to grip tightly.
The robber tried to slash her handbag away from her grip, but in doing that, he slashed her left palm leaving a deep gash. She gave a chilling scream until it alerted all her other colleagues and students. She was quickly administered first aid and was driven to the hospital.
My colleague received 8 stitches. Thank God, her wound was only on her palm only, not on her face or other parts of her body.
Ps. Ladies, please be very careful and alert at all times. Try not to carry handbags if neccessary, if you do carry, BE ALWAYS ALERT and street smart.
