Quick work by officers of the Southern Division’s Emergency Response Patrol resulted in three suspects being arrested mere minutes after a report of a robbery with aggravation against seven victims at South Park Mall, San Fernando on Tuesday afternoon.

The victims told police they were at work at Island Beer Bar around 1:25 pm when three men, one armed with a gun, entered and announced a robbery.

The assailants proceeded to rob the victims of a quantity of cash, valuables and cellular phones before running off.

A report was made to the police and an ERP responded immediately and resulted in officers apprehending the three suspects a short distance away on the mall’s compound.

The suspects; a 29-year-old of St Julien Village, a 22-year-old and a 20-year old, both of Pleasantville, were arrested.

A revolver loaded with two rounds of .38mm ammunition was seized from one of the suspects while all the stolen valuables were recovered.
