It’s alleged that five men came into the cellular shop in the mall with the apparent intention to rob the store.

“They fled the scene with one cellphone which was taken from a customer. No shots were fired and fortunately, no one was injured. The circumstances are being investigated and no one has been arrested as yet,” police spokesperson Andrè Traut said.

“Yes, it’s a private issue, but it was an incredible relationship. It was an absolutely incredible relationship. I wouldn’t trade it. I learnt a lot from it. I think we’ve all taken the lessons we needed to take from that journey and hopefully we can all move forward from that,” she said.

Pearl added that sometimes things don’t go according to plan and its allowed to. “Sometimes things don’t work and they are allowed (not) to,” she said.
