REAL NEWS: A robbery in which a number of valuables, including phones and over $30,000 in cash were stolen – are being Investigated.

Reports say that a resident of the O’Beez Complex on Factory Road was held up at gunpoint by three masked men, who robbed him of US$10,000 in cash; an I-phone 13 Pro Max valued at US$1,200; and his wallet, containing EC$5,000 in cash, along with various identification cards.

The man went to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and reported the incident, which allegedly took place at about 3 a.m. on Saturday, January 28, at Factory Road.

It is alleged that the man was at home and heard knocking on his apartment door and decided to go to check.

Reports are that he saw a man whom he does not know sitting outside his apartment.

As the man turned to re-enter his apartment, three masked men with guns reportedly attacked and forced him into the apartment, where he and his roommate were made to lie on the floor.

The intruders then began to search the apartment and took the money and phone, which they removed from a northeastern bedroom.

They also took five gold chains from the victim’s person, along with EC$500, a silver chain valued at $500, and an I-phone X Pro Max from the roommate’s southeastern bedroom, before they escaped.
