Police Investigate Two Robberies in George Town
At about 6:15PM on Tuesday, 26 September, officers responded to a report of a robbery which occurred on Courts Road in George Town, near Eastern Avenue. The victim was approached by an unknown man, who was riding a bicycle and asked for one dollar. As the victim opened their wallet the suspect snatched a quantity of cash. A struggle ensued and the culprit brandished a knife before fleeing the location with the contents of the wallet. No one was injured during the incident.
Shortly afterwards officers received another report of a robbery in the vicinity of Autumn Lane, where the victim was approached by a man who asked for money. However, the man immediately brandished a knife and took a quantity of personal cash from the victim. He then fled the location.
Police believe both robberies were carried out by the same man. The suspect is described as being between 5'9" and 5'11" in height and of dark complexion. He was wearing a bandana, marina, and jeans pants, and was riding a grey bicycle in the first incident. In the second incident he was wearing a black face towel around his face, a marina, and was on foot. He is also described as having a tooth missing.
Both incidents are currently under investigation, and anyone with any information is asked to contact the George Town Police Station at 949-4222.
