The owner of the service station in Huntums Ghut was robbed of money last evening, December 12, by two masked men.

Allegedly, while entering his vehicle after closing down his business place, the owner was approached by a masked man, who instructed him to hand over the money, all while wielding an object.

The assailant took a bag containing money from the passenger seat of the owner’s vehicle and proceeded to make his way off on foot.

His accomplice shortly followed, after using an instrument to deflate one of the tires on the vehicle.

According to police reports, one assailant is described as being between 6’ to 6’3 in height, slim built with a local accent, while the other is described as about 5’8 in height and slim built.

Both were dressed in all black at the time of the incident.

Police are encouraging business owners to pay close attention to their surroundings, especially during late night operating and closing hours, and to alternate the times that proceeds are removed from businesses.

Persons with information that could be helpful with inquiries into this matter are asked to contact the Criminal Investigation Department through the RVIPF 311 or the Intelligence Unit at 368-9339. Persons can also report the information anonymously to Crime Stoppers through its Miami-based hotline number 800-TIPS (8477).
