Armed Bandits threaten and rob two Women and a Youth in two Separate Incidents; Police searches turn up no Suspects



A teenager and two women are the latest victims of robbery in which gun-toting bandits made off with valuables and money.

A Gambles woman has reported to the Police that she and her friend, of the same address, were robbed of their personal belongings by a masked gunman.

Reportedly, the women were on their way home from work at about 3 a.m. on November 28, and were walking from south to north on Kentish Road.

Upon reaching the stop light near the King George V Grounds and Kentish Road, a man approached them from an alley.

He was dressed in dark clothing, with a hooded shirt over his head and a coloured mask on his face, while holding a black handgun, the women say.

Reports are that he pointed the gun at them and demanded their bags and phones.

He then grabbed the bags and ran off in an easterly direction.

Further reports are that one of the bags contained EC$400.00 and an iPhone 11 Pro Max and the other woman’s purse contained EC$600 and a Samsung A13.

The robber is described as about 5 feet 7 inches tall, of a slim build, and dark in complexion.

A search was carried out in the area for the stolen items and any person fitting the description, but without success.

Meanwhile, a Barnes Hill man took his 16-year-old son, from Branch Avenue, Ottos, to the Police.

The father reported that a man whom his son does not know approached him with a cutlass and stole his Samsung A21 cell phone.

This offence reportedly occurred at about 3:30 p.m. on November 28 on a by-road in the vicinity of Wireless Road.

A search was carried out for the perpetrator without success.

  1. These criminals are becoming more and more brazen — they know they are more likely to get off scot free than be caught and face consequences.

  2. According to BALDWIN SPENCER:


  3. Why the Police did not track the perpetrator of this crime because of the iPhone? that would have made much more sense. It’s a trackable device and I am sure this lady had credit and other features turned on on this phone. It turned out to be a waste of time search by the Police.Thieves are getting away with these brazen attacks because the punishment is not that severe and there is no deterrent, because that type of crime continues unabated. Man may not see, but but God sees and knows everything and one day you will be caught and made to answer for your crimes. Also you may rob the wrong individual and your life will never be the same again, keep stealing and you will see the end results, Let people who don’t report or chastised you for that deviant behavior, only time will tell.

  4. Take a life and get put on UPP slate!!! What a strong message being sent to the youths.
