Senior robbed in laundromat hold-up

An 84-year-old man was robbed on Saturday at the Sandys Laundromat, by an intruder who came onto the premises with a bladed article.

Along with the elderly proprietor, a 27-year-old male customer was robbed, with the culprit leaving with cash and jewellery. Neither was injured.

The robbery occurred at about 1.45pm on the Somerset Road in Sandys.

Inquiries continue, and witnesses or anyone who may have seen a 5ft 8in tall man of average build wearing dark coloured clothing and shoes acting suspiciously near the establishment around that time should contact the Criminal Investigation Department on 247-1744.
