Police report “relatively uneventful” holiday

Police today reported a “relatively uneventful holiday” weekend.

One man was injured in an attempted burglary yesterday.

In a second incident, a thief made off with an undisclosed sum of cash from a Pembroke business on Christmas Eve.

“Police responded to a report of a man lying in the street on Union Street in North Hamilton yesterday at 9.17pm,” a spokesman said.

“Upon police arrival it was ascertained that it appeared to be a botched attempted robbery, however it appears that the suspect made good his escape empty-handed. The victim received a laceration to his face with a sharp object but his injury does not appear to be life-threatening and the victim was reluctant to pursue this matter at this juncture.”

The incident on Friday occurred at 10.17pm.

According to police a man wielding a bladed article entered a business on St John's Road. No one was injured in the theft.

Inquiries into both incidents are ongoing.

Anyone with information about the attempted robbery is asked to telephone 295-0011.

Added the spokesman: “Police would like to thank the public for their assistance over the Christmas period thus far; it has been a relatively uneventful holiday.”
