Princes Town man in court for armed robbery

A 27-year-old man was due to appear before a Princes Town Magistrate on Monday after he allegedly robbed a 56-year-old man at gunpoint.

The incident reportedly took place at about 2:00 pm on Friday.

According to police reports, the victim was walking along Bonanza Street, Princes Town, in the vicinity of the maxi-stand, when he was approached by the suspect.

The man allegedly pulled out a firearm and announced a hold-up.

Fearful for his life, the victim complied with the instructions of the armed assailant and handed over his valuables, including a quantity of cash, and a cellular phone.

The assailant then fled in a black Nissan Teana motor vehicle.

The victim made a report to the nearby police station, and a team of officers led by PC Isaac responded.

The officers were given a description of the suspect as well as the vehicle involved in the robbery, and within minutes, they were able to detain the individual.

Police added that the stolen items were recovered.

More on this as it becomes available.
