Police have made significant progress in their investigation into the armed robbery at Roti King on Saturday night, resulting in the arrest of two suspects.
During the incident, two robbers entered the restaurant in St. John’s City and demanded money while brandishing guns.
An off-duty police officer who was nearby confronted the robbers and was shot below the right knee during a shootout.
The officer received medical treatment and has been discharged.
The robbers fled the scene with XCD$3,000.00 and tickets for the ‘Farmers Only’ event.
Police are urging anyone with information that can aid in their investigation to contact the Criminal Investigations Department at 462-3913 or Crimestoppers.

Hallelujah, amen, finally, the police have got two suspects custody. However, will they keep there and keep them of the streets of Antigua.
Hopefully, the Police will have paperwork and files in order for trial.
Only because 1 of their own was shot they worked so hard on holding them
You go tell me that a trained police officer got shot and wasn’t able to pump some bullets in at least one of the robbers? Better training needed. Sorry for the officer and hopes he has a speedy recovery. Next time the officers need to take good aim and shoot these criminals. Enough is enough.
Anywhere in this report did they make mention of the police being armed? The fact is in Antigua is only about 5 percent of officers or less are armed when off duty.
This is Gaston Browne fault ah he had Antigua so!!!! Everything go wrong ah Gaston Browne fault!!!
I think we need to go the route of Jamaica and pass laws that would force the judges to give minimum sentences for certain offenses. Arm robbery should have a minimum of fifteen years. Assault with a deadly weapon should have classification like Assault with a stick, assault with a knife, assault with a cutlas, assault with a gun, etc. and put minimum sentences accordingly. This is because our judges let criminals out too early. Sometimes one commits the same crime in the span of one year.
