A teenager has been arrested in connection with Tuesday’s armed robbery at M. Soares and Son.

According to a police spokesman, an 18-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident, which took place at the Spanish Point grocer at around 3pm.

It was previously reported that two men had entered the store, brandishing what appeared to be a firearm and made demands of money. They later fled the scene on a motorcycle after receiving an undisclosed amount of money.

Officers are also investigating an aggravated burglary that took place at Valley Road in Paget at around 10.30am yesterday.

“The four males arrested in connection remain in police custody pending further inquiries,” the spokesman said. “They range in age from 21 to 25 years old.

“While it was initially stated that the occupant, a 38-year-old Paget man, was taken to hospital for treatment after being assaulted by the intruders, the Paget resident actually only required treatment at the scene by ambulance EMTs.”

Anyone with any information about either incident are urged to contact the Criminal Investigation Department at 295-011 or the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-8477.
