Suspected robbers in custody
Two men who the police said are being treated as robbery suspects were arrested in Shady Grove, St Catherine, yesterday.
Reports are that about 7:50 a.m., men travelling in a Nissan Tiida motor car reportedly robbed persons in the Ewarton area and were travelling along the Shady Grove main road when the vehicle was intercepted. The men tried to escape and the vehicle crashed. They then reportedly exited the vehicle, opened gunfire at the police and fled into the surrounding area. With the assistance of the Point Hill police and the Linstead police, the area was searched and two men – suspected to be among the robbers – were caught.
One of the men had gunshot injuries and was taken to hospital, where he was admitted under police guard.
