Robbers march man to Hamilton ATM

Two robbers marched a man to an ATM in Hamilton over the weekend and forced him to withdraw money for them.

The pair approached their victim on Reid Street at 3.45pm on Sunday and took him to the nearby HSBC Bank of Bermuda Branch. Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident to contact them.

“It appears that two men approached a complainant on Reid Street, near the Vasco Da Gama Club, and demanded that he hand over his money,” a spokesman said.

“Under duress these men escorted the victim to the HSBC Bank of Bermuda, Reid Street compelling him to withdraw an undisclosed amount of money from the ATM machines located inside of the building. These suspects are described as being brown skinned, between 18 and 22 years of age and wearing red shirts or hoodies. One was riding a red Yamaha motorcycle.”
