Yesterday evening, 3 May, officers were dispatched to a report of an attempted robbery at Caribbean Bakery, on Mount Pleasant Road, West Bay. At about 8:20PM, two staff members had just finished closing up and were about to exit when a man opened the door from the outside and entered the store, brandishing what appeared to be a handgun and demanding money. The staff members refused and the man then ran from the store, making his way towards the rear. Nothing was taken during the incident, no shots were fired, and no one was injured.
The suspect is described as being about 5’11” in height, and of very slim build. He was wearing an orange long sleeve top which was pulled over his head to conceal his face, and gloves.
