Bicycle bandits rob vendor

first_imgA La Penitence Market vendor is now counting her losses after she was on Monday afternoon robbed by two armed bicycle bandits.Chandroutie Mahatoo, 24, of Sideline Dam, La Penitence, Georgetown, was attacked about 13:00h as she was being towed by her brother, 22-year-old Pooran Mahatoo.According to reports, the two were proceeding along James Street, Albouystown, when they were confronted by two males, who rode up alongside them on separate pedal cycles.The bandits then came off their bicycles and blocked the siblings’ path. One of the perpetrators then whipped out a firearm and pointed it at them.His accomplice proceeded to draw an ice pick and demanded that the vendor hand over her bag which contained $50,000 cash, US$250, one High-5 cellphone valued $30,000, one ID card, and one gold chain valued $40,000.The perpetrators then went back to their respective pedal cycle and escaped, east along James Street.The matter was reported, and the Police were investigating.last_img read more

Van Dijk scores winner on Liverpool debut

first_imgBut Van Dijk, who became the world’s most expensive defender when he joined the Reds from Southampton, headed home six minutes from time in the 230th meeting between the sides.“What a night,” said the Dutch defender. “It was thoroughly deserved, it felt amazing to be out there, the goal is very special for me and my family.“Playing at Anfield for Liverpool is a dream for every player. To score a goal is even more special.”Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp handed a debut to record £75 million ($102 million, 85 million euros)signing Van Dijk as he selected arguably his strongest available starting line-up, in contrast to the 1-1 draw in the Premier League played out by the sides in December.Brazil playmaker Philippe Coutinho was again ruled out with a thigh injury as speculation continues to mount over his future amid interest from Barcelona, while top-scorer Mohamed Salah was missing with a groin problem.Everton, who confirmed the sale of midfielder Ross Barkley to Chelsea in the hours leading up to the match, were also at full strength.The atmosphere in the stands crackled and on the pitch it was equally feisty. Wayne Rooney scythed down Joe Gomez early on and was shown a yellow card.Chances, though, were at premium in the first half as Liverpool dominated possession.– Liverpool penalty –The breakthrough came five minutes after the half-hour mark when Liverpool were awarded a penalty by referee Bobby Madley.Everton defender Mason Holgate used his arms on Adam Lallana, who had his back to goal inside the area, and the Liverpool midfielder went to ground.Milner made no mistake with the spot-kick as he dispatched the ball past Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford with confidence.Klopp felt it was not a spot-kick.“It was a similar situation (to the penalty against Liverpool for Everton last month), the first one was no penalty in my opinion and this one wasn’t also,” he said. “It’s the same. There is contact and the referee used his whistle. Exactly the same situation.”Tempers flared when Roberto Firmino was pushed into the advertising hoardings by Holgate before referee Madley stepped in to prevent the incident escalating further following an angry exchange of words.Everton manager Sam Allardyce was more positive with his approach than the fixture last month, although the visitors found Liverpool’s defence, marshalled by Van Dijk, resilient and were unable to register a shot on target in the first half.Rooney wrestled with Emre Can shortly after the break and perhaps fearing a red card was in the offing, Allardyce withdrew the experienced forward.Liverpool continued to carve out chances but were unable to provide the decisive touch and Everton hit them with an equaliser on the counter attack.Yannick Bolasie won possession and found Rooney’s replacement Ademola Lookman, who showed superb awareness to break forward before he found Phil Jagielka on the edge of the box.Rather than shoot himself the defender laid the ball off for Sigurdsson, who calmly stroked the ball into the bottom corner of the net past the flat-footed Loris Karius.However, Liverpool sealed passage to the fourth round — and their first win in five attempts on home turf against the Toffees in the competition — with a dramatic goal in the dying minutes.Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s curling delivery was met by Van Dijk, who towered above Jagielka and powerfully headed home in front of the Kop with Everton goalkeeper Pickford partially at fault as he failed to punch clear.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Virgil van Dijk (R) challenges Everton defender Mason Holgate during Liverpool’s FA Cup clash with their local rivals © AFP / Paul ELLISLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Jan 6 – Virgil van Dijk scored a dramatic late winner on his debut as Liverpool clinched a 2-1 victory over Everton in a heated Merseyside derby FA Cup tie at Anfield.Liverpool had led 1-0 at the break after James Milner converted from the penalty spot but Everton looked to have secured a replay when Gylfi Sigurdsson equalised midway through the second half.last_img read more

Blow for Man United! Strootman’s surgery ‘did not go perfectly’, claims former Roma doctor

first_img Roma star Kevin Strootman 1 Manchester United target Kevin Strootman is suffering an injury nightmare due to the fact his previous surgery ‘did not go perfectly’ – a former Roma club doctor has claimed.The midfielder sustained a knee injury in March 2014, forcing him out of the Netherlands squad for the World Cup in Brazil.The 25-year-old, who has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford, then made his long-awaited return in November last year.However in January, Strootman suffered the same injury again and he has now had surgery as he bids to end his injury nightmare.Former Roma club doctor Mario Brozzi claims the long-standing knee problem is down to the original surgery not being a complete success.“My impression is that the surgery on Strootman’s ligament did not go perfectly,” Brozzi has told La Partita Perfetta on Gold TV.“I don’t know what happened to his knee, but his Cyclops syndrome results from a problem in the ligament’s position.“The cartilaginous damage is determined by the extensive deficit. Now, if this is the situation, I see no way out. But it’s not up to me to say whether further surgery is needed.”last_img read more

They cuffed the boy and took him into custody, then later released him to his parents. It wasn’t known whether the child would face charges. School officials said he had been part of a group caught on camera trying to pull the same prank last month, according to KATV television station in Little Rock. For more cops and crime news, check out It’s a Crime. DUMAS, Ark. – A 10-year-old boy took a school bus and led police on a chase along a rural highway, according to news reports on Sunday. School officials had spotted lights coming from the bus yard around 11 p.m. Friday night, and reported the bus stolen. Officers from three counties, four towns and Arkansas State Police began chasing the bus and its driver. Despite road spikes set up to slow the bus, the bus kept traveling north toward Little Rock along U.S. 65 through Desha and Lincoln counties, then into the next county of Jefferson. “Be advised, he missed them all. We’re now coming into town. Speed’s at 25 miles an hour,” officers said over a radio scanner. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DONEGAL BUSINESSMAN LOSES A ‘TITANIC’ AMOUNT OF MONEY ON LATEST DEVELOPMENT

first_imgThe property company developing the Titanic Quarter in Belfast, which is partly owned by Donegal businessman Pat Doherty, made a £20m pre-tax loss in 2011.The details are contained in the accounts of Titanic Island.Much of the loss is attributed to a one-off payment of £13m to the charitable trust that owns the Titanic Belfast visitor attraction. The directors of Titanic Island state that the opening of the attraction earlier this year was a “tipping point” for the whole development.They add that the past year has been “arguably the most significant” in terms of progress made at the 185-acre development and “the pieces are in place” to make the area one of the most important commercial hubs in Ireland.Group turnover was £43m, down from £61m in 2010 while administrative expenses jumped from £7m to £19m.A £6m write-down in the value of investment properties meant that total after tax losses were £22m. The loss meant that shareholders funds fell from £30m to £8m.At the time the accounts were filed, £75m of Ulster Bank loans had expired and the directors said they were engaging with the bank with a view to restructuring the loans over the medium term.The bank was continuing to make the existing loan facility available while those talks continued.A note in the accounts from the firm’s auditors said the ability of Titanic Island to continue as a going concern is dependent on the continuing support of Ulster Bank.There is nothing to suggest that Ulster Bank will not continue to support the firm. Titanic Island is ultimately owned by Titanic Investments, a Jersey-registered firm controlled by Donegal developer Pat Doherty and billionaire financier Dermot Desmond.A company owned by Mr Desmond, Entice Holdings, has loaned £20m to Titanic Island while companies owned by Mr Doherty have loaned it £22mDONEGAL BUSINESSMAN LOSES A ‘TITANIC’ AMOUNT OF MONEY ON LATEST DEVELOPMENT was last modified: November 5th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

PENSIONERS ‘BLOCKED INTO HOMES’ AS IRISH WATER DIG UP DONEGAL ESTATE – CLAIM

first_imgResidents in Glenties are up in arms after claims that Irish Water have made local pensioners “prisoners in their own homes.”One of the elderly residents on Dr McCloskey Crescent.The company arrived at Dr McCloskey Crescent this morning which is home to 24 local residents.Local community campaigner Brian Carr said none of the elderly residents were given notice of the arrival of Irish water. He also claims that many of the pensioners can now no longer use their footpaths as they have been dug up.“As you can see from the photos they are blocked in their houses with no footpath to walk on. I spoke to some of the residents and they are not happy that they woke up to this this morning without any warning.“One woman who had to travel 100m to the day care centre had to phone her son to come and take her by car a journey which she always walks,” said Mr Carr.He added that he has spoken with the Irish water foreman who claimed that all residents had been notified of their arrival.  PENSIONERS ‘BLOCKED INTO HOMES’ AS IRISH WATER DIG UP DONEGAL ESTATE – CLAIM was last modified: April 27th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Steve Holland: ‘I’d be very surprised if Antonio isn’t at Chelsea next season’

first_imgDeparting Chelsea assistant boss Steve Holland has told talkSPORT he cannot see Antonio Conte leaving the club this summer.Inter Milan are reportedly refusing to give up their pursuit of the Italian, who led the Blues to the Premier League title in his first season at the helm.Holland, who is leaving Stamford Bridge this summer to join the England coaching set-up full-time, is not surprised that Conte is in demand.But he is convinced the 47-year-old will snub any offers from Inter – now backed by mega-rich Chinese owners – and stay at Chelsea long-term.Speaking exclusively to Jim White on talkSPORT, Holland said: “The speculation is normal when a manager has had the success that Antonio has had.“When you think back to the success he had at Juventus and the great job he did with Italy in the last European Championship and add to that the success he has had in his first season in England, it is normal that there will be attention.“There has been a lot of Chinese money that has gone into Inter so it is a club that whoever is at the helm will start to make significant progress and challenge more than they have done in recent years. It is a natural consequence, but I would be very surprised if Antonio isn’t at Chelsea next season.”last_img read more
