Security Guard Assaulted by Gunmen at Antigua Recreation Ground


REAL NEWS: The Police continue to investigate an assault on a security guard, reportedly carried out at the Antigua Recreation Ground (ARG) by gunmen.

Reports say the man, a resident of No. 3 Cassada Gardens, complained to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) that, while he was on duty at the ARG, he was assaulted by three unknown men.

This offence reportedly occurred at about 3:15 a.m. at the Old Parham Road location.

Reportedly, the man was sitting inside his motor van on the western side of the compound, when the three strangers came up to him.

One man allegedly placed his arm around the security officer’s neck and said, “I know you, Man; ah ma boy.”

At the same time, he placed his other hand in the guard’s pockets in search of anything of value and then proceeded to search the victim’s vehicle.

Meanwhile, one of the other men went around to the passenger side, which was locked, while the third man lifted his shirt, showing the butt of what appeared to be a black gun.

He then confirmed to the security guard that the object was, in fact, a gun.

Reportedly a man who was in close proximity saw what was happening, went over to the area, and inquired what was going on.

The three men then fled from the area, in a southerly direction, on foot.
