Police hunt chain-snatching pair
Two men on a motorcycle are believed to be responsible for a string of attempted chain snatches.
In the latest incident, they rode alongside a man and tried to grab a chain from his neck as he travelled south along Barker’s Hill, Devonshire, on Thursday, at about 10.45am.
They escaped in the direction of Parson’s Lane.
The incident was one of a series of chain-snatching attempts this week.
Robbers pulled a chain from the neck of a tourist on Monday as he waited in traffic at Cobbs Hill, Warwick.
A failed attempt to steal a chain from a motorcyclist on South Road, Paget, happened 20 minutes earlier.
A Bermuda Police Service spokeswoman said: “There have been multiple incidents of chain snatching reported to police this week, and we believe that they are being committed by the same individuals.
“All these incidents appear to have been opportunistic with randomly selected targets,” she added.
“We are again urging motorcyclists to properly conceal jewellery and other personal items when travelling to avoid being targeted.”
Police have appealed for witnesses to all the incidents.
