Two arrested after a series of robberies

Two men have been arrested in connection with a series of robberies - one thought to involve a gun - on Monday.

A police statement released tonight said: "Between 10.30pm and 11.45pm on Monday, police received several reports of robberies and attempted robberies having taken place in the Devonshire, Pembroke and Warwick areas.

"The victims of these offences were motorcycle riders and the suspects are thought to have also been on a motorcycle. During the incidents one of the suspects brandished what appeared to be a firearm.

"Two men have been arrested in connection with these occurrences and are currently assisting investigators with their inquiries."

The suspects are described as two young black men believed to be in their 20s; one brown skinned the other of darker complexion, both wearing dark coloured clothing and helmets with visors traveling on a white or dark coloured motorcycle.

The statement added: "In particular, Police are interested in speaking with the driver of a white taxi which was traveling along South Road in Warwick in the vicinity of the Warwick Shell gas station who came across one of these robberies in progress.

"Officers investigating these crimes are appealing for the driver of that taxi or anyone with any information about these incidents to contact the Hamilton Criminal Investigation Unit on 295-0011 or the independent, confidential Crime Stoppers Bermuda hotline on 800-8477."
