(CNS): A 28 year old man involved in a motorcycle collision in West Bay on Friday evening who remains in a critical condition is now also under investigation in connection with an armed robbery at a liquor store. The local man who was very badly injured came off his motorbike along Jefferson Road some 40 minutes after Joe-Ena’s liquor shop, in West Church Street, was held up at gun point.  Police said they don’t yet know how the bike crash occurred but believe the rider may have been the armed, masked man who entered the store demanding cash and escaped with the contents of the register.

The man is currently at the George Town hospital where he is understood to be suffering from serious head injuries.

Police investigating the link and the circumstances of the crash are asking anyone with information on smash or the robbery to contact the West Bay Police Station at 949-3999, the RCIPS’ tip-line on 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (tips)
