Pin It

Police are currently investigating an attempted robbery from a cash-in-transit van in Eastern Avenue, George Town.

Shortly before 8.00 pm on Friday police received a report that two men had attacked a security guard as he was transporting cash to an armoured van in the Dolphin Centre.

One of the suspects was armed with what appeared to be a firearm. He fired a shot and the security guard fell to the ground. The suspects then ran off empty handed.

The security guard sustained slight injuries as a result of striking the ground – he was not injured by the gunfire.

The guard secured the cash and then both he and his colleague, who was within the van, drove off from the scene to a secure location.

The injured guard has been taken to hospital for treatment.

The only description available at the present time is that one of the suspects is around 5’8” in height, slim build, dark complexion and was wearing a white shirt.

Anyone with any information about the crime should contact George Town police station on 9494222, the RCIPS tip line 9497777, or Crime Stoppers 8008477(TIPS).
