Armed Robbers Terrorise Man And His Family In McKinnons


A McKinnons man has reported that his family was terrorised by armed robbers last week.

The man says two men broke into his home and held him at gunpoint around 3am Thursday.

One of the robbers reportedly demanded money while the other pointed the gun at the man. The robbers told the man to sit on the bed and they began shuffling through the man’s belongings.

According to the man, the thieves stole his cell phone, a few pairs of shoes and other valuables.

The man says the armed robbers were terrorizing other family members when he managed to escape through a window and call for help.

Police are probing the matter.

    • Should be. But it should not take the use of the phone tofind the criminals. That fact that the phone is turned on is sufficient. Even if the Police have the technology, they FAIL to act on these matters with urgency. I can almost guarantee if the ONDCP was responsible, they would have had them by now without a doubt.

    • As long as Antigua continues to allow mass immigration from Jamaica and Haiti, we will continue to have these problems.

  1. This is not new news for Antigua. How come only now this making headlines when persons across the island are being robbed at gunpoint or armed robbers break and enter on a regular basis, had to be a high end area robbed . Come on ABPF catch these criminals. Come up with a plan. More Patrols needed.

  2. This crap needs to stop wid dem damn petty thieves…go look hard work fu do you blood sucking ticks,parasetic leeches, vampiric mosquitoes, life draining lices….dem a.k.a fungus, bacteria & germs…hazadous to your poor ppl health.

  3. Thieves are the scum of the earth. Lock ’em up. 1735 is calling them. They are not fit to live in human society, and must be put away.

  4. It will continue because men who tried to stop and in fact stop burglary, robbery, and attempted rape was charged with a crime for stopping inherently dangerous crimes. He was a former police officer, a Superintendent of Police i think his title was and instead of investigating properly to see the retired officer acted in good-faith and reasonably, they (police Henry) instead kept this officer without charging him for over 75 hours, having no clue Saturdays are counted for the 48 hours. These are the officers that is charged with investigating complex crimes.

    I am so sad and disappointed in the police force, the one person left who is trained in law, practices law, they fired. I want Wendell Robinson back and I want Assistant Superintendent of police charge and all charges dropped and any conviction or civil liability removed.

  5. It is full time to declare war on the criminals…….. Antigua is a paradise offering peace, tranquility & entertainment…….. What these criminals are doing are not only tormenting the locals but they are threatening our potential tourists. Police are needed 24/7 to be patrolling more in vehicles & motorcycles…. Neighborhood watches need to be more frequent and the endorsement of surveillance cameras, a set per household, need to be offered by the govt at low prices. Enough is enough…. These criminals must be defeated once & for all……
