Three minors among four arrested for robbery

Four teenagers, including three minors, are currently in police custody, after they allegedly robbed a woman along Morne Coco Road, Maraval, on Tuesday afternoon. 

The suspects are aged 16, 16, 17, and 19, and are all from Ravine Road, Petit Valley. 

The victim, a 19-year-old woman from the community, told police that at about 2:15pm yesterday, she was walking along Mt Camel Road, off Morne Coco Road, when a brown Nissan B14 vehicle pulled in front of her. 

Two people came out of the car and demanded that the woman give up her handbag. 

The woman resisted, but the suspects stole the bag which contained her keys, documents, cellular phone, bank cards, and cash before driving away.

The woman raised an alarm and residents helped to notify the police. 

Cpl Hunte and a team of officers from the Western Division Task Force were assigned to the case and quickly intercepted the vehicle a short distance away, along Yogi Drive. 

The victim was able to positively identify the men. 

PC Espinoza is continuing inquiries.
