Friday, March 18 – Police are investigating a home invasion yesterday afternoon at a residence in the Great Mountain Road.
The victim reported that he was at home around 2:15pm when a lone masked male bearing a firearm entered his residence through the kitchen door, pointed a gun at him and demanded money. He pulled out the change which was in his pocket and put it on the table. The assailant pointed to the other rooms in the house and was told by the homeowner that there was no more money in the house. He picked up the money, slipped out through the kitchen door and fled on foot into the nearby bushes.
The assailant is described as a black, slim built weighing about 170 pounds. He was dressed in a long black pants, black-short sleeve t-shirt and a black t-shirt covering his entire face with just his eyes out.
A bar owner reported over a week earlier, Monday evening, March 7, that two young masked males entered his business place in Carrot Bay and demanded cash from he, his wife and a couple that was at the bar at the time. The two walked away with the small amount of cash in the pockets of the men.
No injuries were reported in either case.
