Businessman robbed while leaving bank with cash


Shots reportedly rang out during the early afternoon hours at the Woods Mall on Friday (April 21) during an alleged broad daylight robbery.

It is alleged that a businessman was accosted by masked gunmen after leaving the ECAB bank at the mall.

Further allegations are that two robbers seemed to have targeted the businessman as he had just withdrawn a large sum of money for his payroll.

Allegations are that the attack took place as the man was walking towards his vehicle.

The bandits were able, according to reports, get away with the money from the man before fleeing to a waiting vehicle, which later sped off from the area.

It is alleged that the businessman managed to open fire on the robbers, but it is unclear if anyone was injured. Some have suggested that the crime was committed by four masked gunmen.

The incident reportedly occurred shortly after 1 p.m.

The police have launched an investigation into the matter as the bandits remain on the run.

  1. Hope he got him good and he die after the businessman retrieve his money, tired of these bastards that think other people’s money belongs to them .

  2. That is good news thieves must be dealt with the sooner the better time ⏲ this nonsense stop,in our community and various islands (oecs)

  3. Did this really happened in my Antigua? What is my Island coming to? Looking like a place for gangster and gangsterism. Taking it to the Next Level.Gaston Browne,Ten Yards Cutie,what are you people doing about the escalation in crimes,in Antigua.

  4. Good job, people need to work for what they want,and leave other people alone,who are working hard to make a living…

  5. The reality is, we are living in a changed world today. Things are not as they were back in the later 1970’s, 80, and even 90’s. People are desperate and there are those out there whose only job is to monitor the movements of suspecting targets with a view of robbing them. And regrettably, many of these businessmen and women who frequent the banks on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis to withdraw large sums of monies, are making it easier for them. We have become too comfortable with our routines and the criminals out there are taking note and will pounce upon us when we least expect it. I am glad that the businessman was not hurt in the process. Money can always be replaced. But you only have one life.

  6. So glad that the businessman survived and took action. As Edmund Burke famously quoted:

    “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”.

    I hope the victim recovers physically and mentally.

    As I have said before about criminality, being BAD IS EASY.

    Why not go out, educate your damn LAZY self and do some hard graft instead of stealing from people who work hard to earn a living and a better life for themselves; their families and the community at large in Antigua & Barbuda.
