Inews understands that the woman was in the lower flat of her two storey house when someone came up from behind and proceeded to choke her.
The man reportedly whispered “you know how long I got my eye on you” before taking her into her shop which is located on the said lower flat and demanded cash.
The frightened woman took $150,000 from her shop’s cash drawer and handed it to the gunman.
