Cashier shaken after armed robbery

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

A female cashier was left badly shaken after two men burst into a restaurant armed with a gun and demanded cash.

The duo, who were dressed in all black and wore motorcycle helmets, raided Island Spice on Middle Road, Warwick, last night just before 9pm. They demanded cash from staff and then fled the scene on a motorbike with an unknown quantity of money.

“The female cashier was left significantly shaken as a result of the incident,” police spokesman Dwayne Caines said.

“Island Spice was open at the time when the two men entered the premises.” Mr Caines added: “It appears that the two men may have been looking around the premises just before the robbery.

“So we are asking anyone who was in the area of Lindo's all the way up to Belmont at just before 9pm and saw two men acting suspiciously on a motorbike to contact us.”

One of the robbers was described as being about 5ft 9in, while the second is believed to be between 5ft 11in and 6ft.

Any witnesses or anyone with any information about the robbery can call 295-0011 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477.
