Police from the Southern Division are currently investigating a report of an aggravated burglary which occurred at about 9 pm yesterday, Saturday 7 May 2022, at Hythe Gardens, Christ Church.
Public Relations Officer with the Barbados Police Service, Inspector Rodney Inniss, said that preliminary investigations revealed that a male Canadian citizen who has been resident in Barbados for the past 12 years, was at his residence on the mentioned date and time, along with four other occupants who were in another section of the house. Two masked men entered his home armed with what appeared to be a machine gun and demanded money while threatening to shoot him.
The complainant in this matter fearing for his life handed over a sum of money to these masked men, after which they ran off, joined by a third man who was on the outside waiting.
Investigations are ongoing.
