Two held for Domino's robbery

Two men are currently in police custody after they robbed Domino’s Pizza in Four Roads, Diego Martin.

According to police reports, around 12.21 pm on Monday, the two suspects, one armed with a firearm, entered the pizza place and announced a hold-up.

The two men then ordered the employees to lie on the ground and they proceeded to relieve them of their cash and valuables.

From the register, the assailants stole $833 and relieved the three victims of their cash and cellular phones.

During this process, one of the victims – a 32-year-old man from Bagatelle – was assaulted as the armed assailant struck him to the face.

Persons who witnessed the incident contacted the police and within minutes a team of officers from the Four Roads Police Station arrived.

On seeing the police, the assailants attempted to flee the scene.

However, when he was confronted by the police the first suspect – a 20-year-old man from La Horquette Valley Road, Glencoe – surrendered. He was detained and taken into custody.

The second man ran along the Diego Martin Main Road but was pursued.

He was eventually detained a short distance away while attempting to hide in an abandoned house.

This suspect, police said, was a 32-year-old man from Upper Haig Street, Carenage.

Both men were detained and taken to the Four Roads Police Station, where they were questioned.

The firearm allegedly used in the robbery, as well as the cash and valuables stolen, were not recovered.

PC James is continuing inquiries.
