Maxi-taxi driver, passengers robbed

Three armed men yesterday robbed the driver and passengers of a maxi-taxi along the Sir Solomon Hochoy Highway.

The incident took place around 1.15 pm near the Gasparillo overpass.

Three men entered a maxi-taxi in Port of Spain, heading towards San Fernando.

As they neared the overpass, the men asked the driver to stop and let them off.

However, as they exited the men pulled out weapons and announced a hold-up.

They then proceeded to relieve the driver and the five passengers in the maxi of their cash and valuables.

The men then escaped on foot.

The driver drove to the nearest police station and made a report on the incident.

San Fernando police are continuing inquiries.
