Armed robber steals cash from Four Star

An armed robber stole cash from Four Star Pizza in Warwick during a raid on Boxing Day.

The offender brandished a knife after entering the upper level of the takeout establishment shortly after 6pm, according to the Bermuda Police Service.

He was handed an undetermined amount of money before fleeing the area on a motorcycle.

A police spokesman said that officers on patrol were able to pursue the motorcycle the robber was believed to have been riding, but the suspect escaped.

The bike was later recovered and is being forensically examined.

No one was injured during the robbery. The suspect was described as having been wearing a black rain suit, a mask and a black helmet.

The incident is not believed to be connected to the fatal crash in Warwick, at the junction of Middle Road and Khyber Pass, at about 6.20pm on the same day.

The Progressive Labour Party yesterday condemned the incident, noting that it was the 15th armed robbery of the year.

Walter Roban, the Shadow Minister of Home Affairs, said: “We are truly grateful that no one was harmed during this incident and encourage the public to assist wherever they can to bring the perpetrator to justice.”

Mr Roban also expressed concerns that economic challenges combined with police budget cuts could lead to further offences, and urged the Bermuda Government to tackle these issues.

• Witnesses or anyone who may have information about this robbery are urged to call police on 295-0011 or the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
