Masked gunmen stormed Builders Choice at La Fargue, Choiseul, on Thursday about 2:45 p.m and made off with an undisclosed sum of cash after roughing up some employees.

CCTV footage posted on social media shows two men, both masked and wearing caps, alighting from a small blue vehicle and accessing the business establishment while the vehicle remained parked outside.

One of the two men who exit the vehicle is carrying a bag.

And once the duo get inside the building, they manhandle employees, including a female in an office who appears to be offering no resistance, but whom one of the gunmen slaps, punches and chokes before stuffing valuables into his bag.

Other footage shows the two bandits emptying a cash register after a female employee opens it.

According to information, while the robbery was underway, a third man was waiting in the vehicle that was parked outside and drove off with the two gunmen after the crime was committed.

However, after an alarm was raised police went in hot pursuit of the gang, resulting in their vehicle being intercepted at Praslin and the arrest of one of the men whom police suspect was the getaway driver.

Police say they are on the hunt for the two others who fled into some bushes and disappeared.
