Truck driver robbed by 'Good Samaritan' while changing tyre

A 30-year-old delivery truck driver, who stopped to change a tyre, was robbed by a man posing as a good Samaritan.

According to police reports, around 7 pm on Thursday, the victim's delivery truck got a flat tyre as he was leaving Caroni and had pulled aside to change it.

While he was in the process of doing so, a white Nissan Frontier pulled up alongside him and the occupants got out and offered assistance.

One of the men exited the truck, however, and instead of helping, pulled out a firearm and announced a hold-up.

The delivery truck driver was then robbed of $3,200 in cash, which represented the day’s sales.

The assailants then escaped in their van.
