According to Benedicta, she was waiting to be checked into her room at 7:00am when three armed men robbed her of my belongings and travel documents at gun point, just at the reception right before the receptionist and the security men, who couldn't help.
The distraught Benedicta says she's traumatized and fear this experience may affect her performance at the grand finale. She says she doesn't know how to replace her stolen costumes, documents, shoes and accessories.
