Armed robbers target Pink Beach

Police are looking for two men after an armed robbery at the former Pink Beach hotel property in Smith's.

According to Bermuda Police Service spokesman Dwayne Caines, two suspects approached the construction site manager shortly after 5pm yesterday and repeatedly made demands for cash. They had what appeared to be a firearm.

When he replied that he did not have any money, they snatched a chain from his neck and fled on a motorcycle.

Mr Caines said: “The Bermuda Police Service does not believe this was a random attack. Early indications suggest this was a targeted attack.”

Both suspects were described as thin, light-skinned males and between 5ft 7in and 5ft 9in. One was wearing a red hoodie, the other had dark clothes.

Anyone with information is urged to call the police on 295-0011 or the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
