Woman, 65, beaten and robbed

Cecily Asson Saturday, May 20 2017

A 65-YEAR-OLD pensioner was beaten, tied up and robbed of $45, 000 worth of cash, jewellery, two laptop computers and a cell phone during a daylight robbery at her home in St Julien Village on Tuesday. The victimís 20-yearold female relative and her (the relative) boyfriend, 24, the latter being recently released from prison, have since been held in connection with the incident.

Up to yesterday they were being interrogated at Princes Town Police Station. Charges are expected to be laid over the weekend. Police said the couple did not wear masks during the robbery. They were arrested on Thursday night in Chaguanas by Sgt Mohammed and a team of officers from the Chaguanas CID. The stolen laptops, cell phone and some of the jewellery have since been recovered.

Yesterday, the victim identified the suspects and the recovered items.

According to a police report, at 12.30 pm on Tuesday, the woman was alone at home when the couple entered the house and proceeded to beat and tie her up. They ransacked the house, removing several items, before making good their escape. Following the ordeal, the pensioner managed to free herself and contacted the police.

Sgt Ramlogan, Cpl Nanan, PCs Mitchell and Ramkissoon of the Princes Town CID visited the scene.

Acting on information received, officers of the Chaganuas CID were contacted and on Thursday night the coupleís vehicle was intercepted in Chaguanas.

Police said the male suspect is a known offender having been charged with robbery and car theft. He was only released from prison on Carnival Tuesday. PC Ramkissoon is investigating.
