Police recover car after woman robbed in 'accident'
One woman who was hit in an accident soon discovered that the people who hit her were, in fact, bandits.
According to a statement issued by the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS), the 45-year-old Arouca woman was driving her Toyota Axio Corolla along Windy Hill Road, Arouca, around 9:00 pm on August 18 when a vehicle travelling in the opposite direction collided with hers.
Police said the woman came out of her car to examine the damage and was speaking to the driver of the other vehicle when an armed assailant walked up behind her.
She said the driver of the other vehicle then demanded that she hand over her car keys.
The first suspect then drove off with her vehicle, while the second suspect entered the other car and also drove off.
A report was made to the Arouca Police Station and a wireless transmission issued about the incident. PCs Lennon Lezama and Phillip, both of the Maloney Crime Patrol Unit, who were on patrol looking for the stolen vehicle spotted and intercepted it at Martinez Trace, Arima, some 30 minutes after the report was made.
Police said two suspects, who were in the car at the time, managed to escape into some nearby bushes.
Investigations are ongoing.
