She was standing next to her car while Holder had gone into the vulcanizing shop when the two men confronted her and confiscated her gold chain and two gold rings.Upon realising that Carrington was being robbed, Holder confronted the men, but one of them took out a handgun from his pants waist and discharged a round in the air before they ran into an alleyway through which they escaped, leaving their pedal cycles behind.The Police were contacted and the area was combed, but the two men had already disappeared without trace.
