The public is advised to be alert to attempts to lure them into danger, following two armed robberies which happened under similar circumstances.
Officers within the South Western Division of the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF) are investigating two armed robberies at the Layou Playing Field on March 10, 2020 and May 2, 2020 respectively, a release from the police said.
Both incidents bear the same modus operandi by the assailants.
According to reports, on March 10, a male resident of Richland Park was robbed of one Samsung Galaxy S10, 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 playing field at Layou; and on his arrival there, he was robbed by two armed masked men at gunpoint.
Further, on May 2, two male residents of Campden Park were also robbed at gunpoint of their property valued over EC$1100 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.
The general public is asked to take note of these occurrences and not to be lured into situations of a similar nature.
