Penal man charged with burglary


    A 35-year-old Penal labourer has been charged with burglary.

    Around 2:30am on August 10th, a Penal woman was awoken by a noise at her bedroom door.

    Armed with a knife, the suspect stormed in, attacked her and threatened her life.

    The woman defended herself, leading to a struggle during which time the man fell to the floor.

    He escaped by jumping through a window.

    The suspect was arrested and charged yesterday after extensive enquiries.
