Mini-mart West Bay(CNS): A lone gunman made off with an undisclosed quantity of cash and five mobile phones on Saturday night following an armed robbery at a mini-mart in West Bay. In the first of two armed robberies in the district over the weekend, at about 8:20pm the robber, who was wearing a dirty t-shirt across his face, entered Eddies #2 Minimart (Malcolm’s Minimart) on Birch Tree Hill Road, armed with a handgun and demanded cash.

He ordered the female employee, who was alone in the store, to empty the cash register before he also made off with the five phones.

The gunman did not fire the weapon and the woman was not hurt during the hold-up. The robber was said to be about 5’4”, of medium build with a dark brown complexion, wearing a long sleeved shirt or sweater and carrying a black or purple string bag. Although the mini-mart is equipped with CCTV, police did not say if the culprit was caught on camera.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the George Town CID at 949-4222 or the Miami-based call centre of Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS).
