Officers in the south western police division are investigating two armed robberies at the Layou Playing Field on March 10 and May 2 in which women lured men to the area, where they were later robbed at gunpoint.
Police say that on March 10, a male resident of Richland Park was robbed of one Samsung Galaxy S10 smart phone, after communicating with a female who claimed that she was living at Layou.
The complainant explained that he had made plans with the female to meet at the Layou Playing Field. And on his arrival there, two masked men robbed him at gunpoint.
Further, on May 2, two male residents of Campden Park were also robbed at gunpoint of their property valued over EC$1,100 by an unknown assailant.
The complainants reported that prior to being robbed, they made plans with a female who identified herself as “Alicia” to meet at the Layou Playing Field, where they were eventually robbed.
Police are urging the public to take note of these occurrences and not to be lured into situation of a similar nature.
“Accordingly, anyone has any information that will aid in the investigations; the arrest and prosecution of the offender(s) are asked to contact the Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of Crime at 1-784-4561339 or the Officer in charge of the South Western Division at 1-784-458-7329 or any police officer/station that they are comfortable with. All information will be treated confidentially,” police said on Wednesday.
