When two men armed with a gun and a baseball bat entered her home, 68-year-old Deanna Quitugua was alone and frightened. Her home is in a quiet neighborhood close to Agueda Johnston Middle School.
"I didn't try to resist," the Ordot resident said as she recounted Tuesday morning's events. "The things that were taken were just things and can be replaced, and that I think was most important. I'm not gonna fight or take a bullet for a wallet."
It was a typical morning for Quitugua, who was going about her routine when a white Honda sedan she didn't recognize drove up. A man she'd never met before came to the door and asked for someone named Josh.
"I told him there's no one with that name here and they took off," she said.
About 15 or 20 minutes later, they came back.
"The door to the house was open because I like the fresh air in the morning," she said. "They had a baseball bat and a pistol and they walked right in. They took my purse, an old pickle jar that I had been collecting coins in for a long time, and I'm not too sure what else."
She said the experience "seemed surreal."
"I was just walking along beside them," she said. "I'm 68 years old and 90 pounds, what could I do? They took my stuff, went through my closets and then took off."
Quitugua said she called police, who arrived quickly. She was able to give them a license plate number, and make and model of the car, and a rough description of the two men. She was told the car had been spotted in a parking lot in the Mongmong area but hadn't received word of arrests as of Tuesday evening.
Sgt. Paul Tapao, Guam Police Department spokesman, said the incident is under investigation.
"The police took fingerprints, the mayor's been over, and so have a bunch of other people," Quitugua said. "I have a lot of cleaning up to do."
She said Tuesday morning's incident disrupted the peace she's always enjoyed in the area.
"It's been very quiet here and I've been here for a long time," she said.
"Things happen wherever you are – no one's exempt. I just hope to God this was a one-time occasion."
