The RCIPS is currently investigating two armed robberies that occurred a little over an hour apart from each overnight (7-8 July) in George Town.
The first of these two incidents occurred at the Al La Kebab restaurant on Lawrence Boulevard. Police say they responded to a report around 11:20 p.m. last night (7 July) that four men, dressed in all black and wearing masks had approached workers at the location. One of the men was armed with a handgun. The men demanded cash. They made off with an undisclosed sum.
The second incident happened at the George Town Bus Terminal on Edward Street. Police say they received a report at about 12:40 a.m. (8 July) that a bus driver was robbed. According to the RCIPS a man dressed in all black and carrying a handgun had approached the bus and demanded cash from the driver and other occupants. The man then fled in the direction of Mary Street with a quantity of cash.
No shots were fired during the overnight incidents and no one was injured.
