At about 8pm the victim reported to 911 that he had just been robbed at his home on Eastern Avenue in the vicinity of Payless Autos and the suspects had left on foot. The two men involved were said to be brandishing what appeared to be handguns as the three armed robbers approached the victim outside his home address. The suspects then forced the man back into his residence and demanded he hand over any cash. An undisclosed sum of money was handed over before the robbers locked the victim and his family in a room and the suspects ran from the scene.

No shots were fired and no one received any injuries. The first suspect was described as a dark skinned male, medium build, 6'4" in height, wearing a long sleeved green/brown military style jacket, dark coloured scarf over face, dark coloured material covering head who spoke with a Jamaican accent. The second was also said to be around 6' 4" wearing a purple jacket with dark coloured material over face and head. The woman was said to be of a stocky build wearing a white short sleeved blazer.

When police arrived at the scene they said road blocks had been set up and search of the area was immediately undertaken but no arrests have been made at this time.
The robber comes after a short lull in armed heists

      The announcement is, 'we need more people', and our government has thrown the doors wide open for criminals to enter and do whatever they want.  This unfortunately is the dilema that we find ourselves in.

      The fat-cats think that fortesses and security guards and tinted windows will protect them from all criminal activities.
