Men robbed at Manzanilla Beach

Police are investigating after two men were robbed at gunpoint at Manzanilla Beach.

The men told police that on Tuesday morning, they were both in a vehicle along Calypso Road after they were liming with a group of friends.

The two told police they had consumed alcohol and they both retreated to a nearby vehicle to sleep.

However, at about 1am that day they were awakened by a knocking on the window of the vehicle.

A man, who was armed with a firearm, was standing outside the car and a woman was next to him.

The armed assailant announced a hold up and relieved the victims of their cellular phones, cash, and jewellery.

The suspects then fled the scene on foot.

The victims made a report to the police and WPC Simmons is continuing inquiries.

More on this as it becomes available.
