Weekend robberies

Pin It

Armed robbers at the weekend focused on individuals, assaulting a George Town man outside his home and stealing a cash-filled sack, while breaking into a house in West Bay and taking a wallet and two cellphones.

Both attacks occurred on Sunday, the first about 2am in Palm Dale, outside the male victim’s home, where, he told police, two masked men with a handgun and a knife approached him, taking a bag with an undisclosed sum of cash.

The second incident came at approximately 7pm, when, the male victim reported, a man brandishing “what appeared to be a firearm” entered his Capt Curry Road home, taking his wallet and the telephones.

In both cases, police reported, the assailants did not fire shots and no injuries resulted. Both sets of thieves fled on foot.

The Palm Dale victim was unable to describe his attackers, while the Capt Curry householder said the suspect was of slim built and between 5’10” and 6ft tall, wearing a black mask, a long-sleeved black shirt and black trousers.

The twin incidents come after a similar 28 December episode in which two armed men, wearing black masks, robbed staff at Town Hall Road’s Alfresco Restaurant of an unspecified sum of cash, firing no shots and fleeing on foot.

Police continue to investigate.
