A security officer who was conducting routine patrols at West Mall may have prevented a robbery on Monday morning.

Police said that the 22-year-old  security officer from Egret’s  Security was on patrol on the eastern entrance of the mall around 3:00 am on Monday when he heard a loud noise.

Upon investigating, he saw three men at the eastern side entrance and raised an alarm then called for back-up.

The men, on seeing the security guard, fled into a white Nissan Almera which was waiting nearby.

Personnel from Allied Security responded to render assistance.

The police were notified and officers from the Western Division police responded.

WPC Francis is continuing inquiries.
