UWI students robbed near campus

Five university students were robbed on Friday morning along Watts Street, St Augustine.

The five who are between the ages of 19 and 29, were walking along Watts St around 12:10 am, when a white Nissan X-trail pulled alongside them.

According to reports, three men exited and approached the group.

The men announced a holdup and, while none of the men appeared to be armed, one of the assailants did slap and assault a member of the group who resisted - a 21-year-old from Cipero Road, San Fernando

All five were relieved of their cash, electronics, and other valuables.

The suspects then returned to the X-trail and drove off.

The police were notified and officers from the St Joseph Police Station responded.

PC Nunez is continuing inquiries.
