| 15/09/2014

(CNS): A 35-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with a robbery at a George Town gas station early Saturday morning. The man reportedly entered the Esso “On the Run” gas station at the junction of Boilers Road and Walkers Road at about 1:30 am on 13 September armed with a machete. Having approached one of the cashiers, the robber demanded cash as he banged the machete on the counter. The cashier opened the till and the suspect removed just over CI$800 and about US$24  in cash. He then fled on foot. Officers were sent to the scene and soon after arrested the suspect. Most of the cash was recovered, police said, and no one was physically injured. The alleged robber was set to appear in court Monday.
