(CNS): The RCIPS has opened a robbery investigation following the mugging on Tuesday of two men in a street off School Road, George Town. Police say that the victims were sitting behind a store in the area at around 11am when they were approached by a masked man, who made threats towards them and demanded cash. The mugger lifted his shirt to reveal what appeared to be a gun before grabbing cash and personal items from the men and then fleeing on foot, heading east.

The suspect was about 5’8″ or 5’9″ and of dark complexion. He was wearing blue jeans, a dark long-sleeved shirt and a black ski mask.

Anyone with information is asked to call George Town CID on 949-4222. Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777 or the website. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to

    Dump of an area that is unlikely to ever see a police presence apart from the odd patrol car driving by.

    Why would the robber assume two random men have cash worth stealing? either targeted or randomly stupid and high risk.

    CCTV. There must be a whole load of business cameras, govt cameras (lol), and ring style doorbells.

    High risk, presumably low reward. These are the idiots we’re left with.

    Clearly the armed robber should be informed about the Commissioner’s new strategic approach to crime.

      Clearly the gunman must have factored the materiality of the “transformational change” talk, as further permission to proceed, and a success it was! A sensible risk-based approach! No shots fired!

      Was it loaded? Was it a squirt gun?

      Simply drive down the road from 7mb KFC to Eastern Ave T junction with sound way on any week day at 5:10 pm and you’ll have your answer.
