Victim appeals to bandit who robbed him at gunpoint to return his phone, on which critical medical information is saved



An All Saints resident is asking the man who robbed him to return his cell phone, since critical medical information is stored on the device.

The man tells REAL News he was held up, last week, by a man who was dressed completely in black with a T-shirt wrapped around his head.

The incident took place at about 9:30 p.m. last Wednesday, November 9, in the parking lot of a Pentecost Church in All Saints.

Along with his Blu V91 cell phone, the victim says the gun-toting bandit relieved him of a bunch of keys and his wallet, with all his ID and bank cards.

Reportedly, the robber also wanted the keys to the victim’s pick-up, but he did not hand them over. Instead, the man ran to a nearby house where the home-owner called the Police.

The man is grateful that he was not harmed, but says the return of his phone would be greatly appreciated.

Not only does he need the medical information saved in the cell, but the key to access his medication is stored there, as well, he says.

  1. Sorry to hear about this robbery. These criminals were targeting churches, now church members. So you need to go to church in groups. Also have all lights on around the church and parking lot. The police is not patrolling at nights. Yesterday on the observer radio morning show when the traffic officer was asked about night patrol/ night policing he lost his usual fluent and started stammering. We need to be truthful at all levels. There is no police presence at night in St. John’s much less to rural communities. Unless they are called you do not see them. So if the police lack manpower say so. If the police lack vechicles say do but not to be truthful about the situation to cover up will never solve the problem. Antiguans were shocked to know the conditions in Clare view and the working conditions in the prison..
