The victim, who is from New Grant, told police that around 6 pm she was walking along Waterlane Street, Princes Town when she was approached by the armed suspect.

The man then made his escape on foot.

The police were notified and a team of officers from the Central Division, including PC Rampersad and PC Ramkissoon, responded.
