3 masked and armed men rob Diamond Ice Supermarket


REAL NEWS: A brazen daylight robbery took place at about 3 p.m. on Sunday, September 17, at the Diamond Ice Supermarket in Ottos.

Reports say the Police were alerted to the crime at approximately 3:15 p.m.

A source tells REAL News that three masked men, dressed in dark clothing, drove up to the business place in a silver Toyota Vitz.

While one remained with the vehicle, the source claims, the other two, allegedly armed, went inside and held up the two cashiers.

After they collected the cash, the bandits ran outside and got back into the car, with all three making their escape via Rose Street.

It is not known how much money they took in the heist.

Meanwhile, a 39-year-old man, Rodney Piper, has become the country’s latest murder victim.

Piper, according to reports, sustained a severe beating from a group of young men – allegedly over a phone belonging to the him – and was admitted to the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre on Sept 9.

He reportedly remained in a coma, but succumbed to cardiac arrest just before noon on Sunday.

Sources allege to REAL News that no one had been charged, to date, for the assault on Rodney – although other persons say the Police know the identity of the perpetrators.

With Rodney’s passing, however, it is expected that his attackers will be facing murder charges.

  1. The Police needs to charge the perpetrators with Murder.Too much blood shedding in Antigua.The young people and them a over do now.

  2. I was using a crime prediction analysis to predict crimes like this, so I predicted this crime and another, informed the deputy commissioner ahead of time, about such kind of crime and as usual, it seems I was ignored.

    I will not say publicly the next vicious crime that my analysis predicted, I just informed the deputy commissioner and I pray he keep that a secret and only implement preventative measures. But let us see if I am once again correct.

    Crime prediction, analysis, statistics and pattern are very useful.

  3. My way of helping, you chatting “hog wash.” People don’t and can’t work from what you think, feel or believe may happen so, come better than that. Our young people (boys in particular) are getting out of control and I am predicting retaliation from the public.
