The wobble Excerpts:
It was at this point that the 14-year-old made her move to disarm him and leave him almost helpless. Gomes said that she picked up a cutlass, went to the back landing, and threw the cutlass, using the sharp edged instrument as a missile.
The escaping man wobbled before falling after being hit. Gomes said he then asked his wife for another cutlass and went downstairs. “He fall down and the gun on the ground with everything that he take from the house, so I give he some good broadside, but I slip in the drain and he take the cutlass and chop me.”
