On Wednesday, November 8, a Cashew Hill man fell prey to a frightening robbery on Golden Grove Main Road. Around 12:15 a.m., the victim, sitting in his blue Nissan X-trail jeep valued at $35,000, was approached by three young males clad in dark-colored attire, all brandishing firearms.
Following a call to the 911 emergency hotline, the victim reported the theft of his vehicle and two cell phones at gunpoint.
The armed assailants, speaking with distinct Antiguan accents, demanded the victim exit the vehicle before rifling through his pockets and seizing his phones.
The perpetrators swiftly escaped in the stolen vehicle towards the Antigua State College vicinity.
A subsequent police search proved partially successful, as one of the victim’s cell phones—an iPhone XS—was recovered near the Multi-Purpose Cultural and Exhibition Centre. However, the vehicle and the second phone remain missing.
Investigations are ongoing to apprehend the suspects and recover the stolen property.
