(CNS): The detectives investigating an armed robbery at Jose escape gas station on Crewe Road earlier this month are asking a witness who was a customer in the store at the time to come forward. Police said Tuesday that a man was served by the staff just before the lone masked, gun man entered the gas station store at around 8.40 pm on Friday, 3 June, brandishing what appeared to be a handgun. No arrests have been made in connection with this enquiry to date but the officer in charge said police are keen to speak to the customer as they believe he may have information that could help the enquiry.

Detective Constable Karen McQuade said the man was served by staff just before the robbery took place. “This customer may have information which could be vital to the enquiry”, said DC McQuade. “He was still within the premises when the robbery took place but left the scene before officers could make contact with him. He is described as having a black complexion and being of large build. He had dread lock hair and was wearing lilac-light blue shirt ¾ length denim shorts and work boots. He may also have facial hair. It isn’t known if he left the gas station on foot or in a vehicle.”

During the robbery the lone gunman who had threatened the attendants and taken an undisclosed sum of cash before he made off behind the building where he discharged a shot. Despite the robbery discharging his weapon no-one was injured in the incident. The gunman was described as being approximately 6ft 1inch tall, dark complexion wearing full black clothing, gloves and mask.

The witness, or anyone who can assist in tracing him, should call George Town CID on 949- 4222 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477 (TIPS).

      The RCIP is incompetent enough as it is so you can’t rely on them for any protection. Hear no evil…see no evil!
