Young Man Caught After Attempted Robbery

Young Man Caught After Attempted Robbery

A crowd gathered outside the Racaii Building on Jeremie Street after a young man was caught in the act of stealing just around noon today.

Reports are that the young man, who ripped a chain from a woman’s neck who was walking on the road, was caught just seconds after running away by a plain clothes police officer (shown in blue shirt) right where it happened.

A knife was found in the young man’s possession after being searched by the officer.

Another plain clothes police officer (shown with stripped shirt and red bag pack) who arrived on the scene was seen restraining the young man by his belt with one hand, while holding his knife in the other.

Incidents like these are becoming more commonplace on the island.

    I think this area is becoming a target spot for thieves. Just about 3 weeks ago i was also a victim. The guy actually pushed his hand in the pocket of my bag whilst I was entering a Gros Islet bus. I felt his presence i looked back in time to see the bastard pushing my phone in his pocket. I asked it to him and he suprisingly handed it back. My friend also witnessed a similar incident on that same bus stop last week. So ppl please be very vigilant. Because they’re out there lurking.
