Shortly after 8:45PM, Sunday 24 April, police responded to a report of an armed robbery outside a premises on Shedden Road, George Town, just west of Eastern Avenue.
A woman had just exited the premises when she was approached by a silver Honda CRV with tinted windows. Two men exited the vehicle, one armed with a handgun, and demanded her handbag. The men took the handbag, which was a light and dark brown checker pattern, and contained the woman’s passport, purse, cellphone and other personal items.
The man with the handgun was described as short and slim in stature, with light brown complexion and dressed in black clothing, with long sleeves, balaclava, and black gloves. The second male was tall and muscular with light brown complexion, also dressed in black clothing, with long sleeves and light green gloves.
The men then returned to the car and fled the location. The woman was not injured during the incident and no shots were fired.
A second armed robbery was reported to police the same night, shortly after 10:00PM, at Dominoes Pizza on Garston Smith Drive, West Bay, where two masked men armed with handguns entered the premises and demanded money from the staff.
During the encounter one of the staff members was struck in the face by one of the masked men, causing a wound.
Both males then left the premises with a quantity of cash.
The staff member that was injured was transferred to the George Town Hospital by ambulance to receive medical attention.
Police believe both armed robberies are connected, and are encouraging anyone that may have witnessed either of these robberies, or has information concerning these incidents, to contact 911.
