A family on Virgin Gorda has been left shaken after three masked gunmen invaded their home this afternoon, September 18.
The police are seeking the public’s assistance in capturing the armed men who reportedly entered the home of an employee of EMC Construction and demanded his whereabouts.
Using straps, the gunmen tied the family and also demanded money from them. The masked men later fled the scene before the arrival of the officers.
The family was unharmed and it’s unclear how many family members were involved in the incident.
Persons with information that can lead to the identification of the suspects involved can contact the emergency number 911 or RVIPF’s non-emergency line — 311.
The police are reminding residents that all information will be treated with discretion and confidentiality will be assured.
This incident comes just a week after the BVI was rocked by the murder of Matthew Daly who was shot in Spring Ghut on September 10. Just a week before that, another man, George ‘Shawala’ Burrows was shot in his home.
The police have not yet made any major breakthroughs in both cases.
