One of them was in possession of a firearm. After committing this act, all four persons fled the scene on foot.
The second robbery took place on Billy Folly Road in the vicinity of Buccaneer’s and Burger King. The victims were robbed of their cash and cellphones by two unknown armed men.
The suspects had their faces covered, and after committing this act they fled the scene on foot.
The Detective Department is presently investigating several cases of “chain snatching,” which have recently taken place.
