Woman robbed at knifepoint in Maraval

A 33-year-old woman was robbed at knifepoint in Maraval on Wednesday afternoon.

The victim, who resides in Port of Spain, was said to be standing along Velenton Road, Maraval, at about 2:00 pm when she was approached by a man not known to her.

The suspect was a man of African descent, five feet tall, slim build, and was wearing dark coloured clothing including a pair of three-quarter jeans.

He was holding a knife when he approached the victim and told her to “give meh all yuh belongings”.

The victim became fearful for her life and handed over her handbag which contained two cellular phones, as well as a quantity of cash.

The assailant then escaped by running south on Champ Elysees Street.

Cpl Budri is continuing enquires.
