Police appeal over assault on pizza man
A “horrendous” armed robbery of a pizza delivery man yesterday sparked an appeal from police for information.
Detective Inspector Derek Berry said the “use of weapons and the level of violence apparently used in this robbery is particularly troubling”.
The 40-year-old man, from Sandys, suffered cuts to his neck and arm and a broken forearm, after he was attacked at about 8.30pm on Wednesday by two men armed with a machete and a knife.
The man was assaulted at the junction of West Side Road and Church Valley Lane in Sandys.
One of the attackers fled on foot and the other escaped on a motorcycle.
Mr Berry said that “all indications are that the attack was unprovoked and occurred whilst the victim was going about his normal course of business as a food-delivery worker”.
He added: “The Bermuda Police Service is now renewing its appeal for anyone with information on this violent crime to please come forward and provide us with that information, as we work to further our investigation and bring the perpetrators to justice.”
Anyone with information should contact police on 295-0011 or the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline, 800-8477.
