An armed gang invaded a pregnant woman’s house and threatened her at knifepoint – but she was saved when her adopted dog burst through the door and defended her.
Kasha Marie Weston, 24 from Kent was heavily pregnant when the gang rushed her home in Gravesend, held her at knifepoint and brutally beat her partner.
But Rocky, a Rottweiler, burst through the door from the bathroom when he heard the commotion and scared the gang off.
Speaking about the attack, Kasha said:
Aryan and I were in bed, with Rocky fast asleep on the floor next to us. Suddenly, there was a loud banging on the front door.
Rocky shot straight out the room, barking madly. He wouldn’t calm down and we were worried he was going to wake the street, so we put him in the bathroom.
We opened the door gently and as we did a gang of four men burst through. They shouted, ‘Where’s the money?’. We didn’t know what they meant.
One of the hooded men grabbed me by the arm and held the knife to my throat.
Aryan grappled with the other three and I could hear Rocky going mad in the bathroom. I begged them to leave us alone I thought they were going to kill us.
But then Rocky crashed out the bathroom and came bounding over. He sprang to our defence and bared his teeth at the intruders.
They were terrified and ran out the front door but Rocky was hot on their heels.
Kasha said she followed her partner and Rocky as they chased the men down the street:
He was saying, ‘I’m sorry,’ and Rocky was growling. Aryan held onto him and the police arrived.
Who knew what would’ve happened if he hadn’t been there? Over the next few days, he didn’t leave my side.
He’d even tenderly nudge my bump with his nose. It was as if he was telling the baby not to worry either.
BREAKING NEWS: BoG takes over Unibank
The Bank of Ghana has announced it has taken over the management of private bank, Unibank.
The Governor of the central bank explained at a press conference, the takeover is due to challenges facing the bank. He mentioned weak supervisory standards and weak operations as the cause of the challenges.
Ernest Addison said the bank, adjudged the 6thbest performing company in Ghana at the Ghana Club 100 awards in 2017, provided inaccurate data during the central bank’s effort to resolve the problems last year.
He assured depositors their money is safe, stressing “we are not liquidating the bank, we are saving it.”
