Yesterday morning, 8 July, police received a report of an armed robbery which had taken place at about 2:50AM that same morning on Smith Road, west of Huldah Avenue. A man had been standing on the roadside just across from a bar, when he was approached by two masked men, one of whom brandished a gun. The men robbed him of cash and personal items before leaving the scene. It appears as if one shot was fired during the incident, however no one was injured.
The matter is currently under investigation, and anyone with any information is asked to contact George Town CID at 949-4222.
