Venezuelan national among two robbed in Woodbrook

Two persons – including a Venezuelan national – were robbed in Woodbook at gunpoint.

The incident took place around 8.10 pm on Monday, along Ariapita Avenue, near Colville Street.

The two were backseat passengers in a car which was driving along Ariapita Avenue. When the duo got into the vehicle they observed a male driver and a male front seat passenger.

However, nothing about the demeanour of the two men, police were told, indicated that they were a threat.

Upon nearing Colville Street, the driver brought the car to a stop and the front seat passenger announced a hold up.

He pulled out an object which resembled a firearm.

The victims were then robbed of their cash and valuables, including a cellular phone, over $1,000 in cash they were carrying.

They were ordered out of the car, and the vehicle drove off in a southerly direction along Colville Street.

A report was made to the Woodbrook Police and investigations are ongoing.
