The Police are investigating an apparent robbery attempt.

Reports are that a Parham Town businesswoman, the proprietor of Shay Shay restaurant on upper Church Street, had a close call with a gunman at her place of operation in the early hours of October 11.

Reports say she arrived at her business place at about 4:30 a.m. and observed the alleged assailant sitting on the steps.

He was dressed in a grey long-sleeved hooded shirt and a pair of long blue jeans.

She was unable to see his face; so, instead of getting out of her vehicle, she began to honk her horn until he left the area.

Subsequently, while setting up the restaurant she went outside and saw the same man on her compound.

He appeared to be carrying a black firearm in his right hand while scaling the gate.

The woman immediately ran into the restaurant, but was followed by the gunman, who began to pound on the door.

He later left after she placed a call to the CID.

This incident reportedly occurred at about 5:45 a.m.
