PROBE: Gunman fires shots in bar, steals cash

Road Town Police Station now

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) has launched a probe into an armed robbery in Sea Cow’s Bay last night.

Reports are that around 10pm yesterday, a lone gunman entered through the back of Isabella Bar and opened fire in the air.

No one was reported injured but police said the assailant made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police responded at the scene after the bar owner reported the incident.

“No description was given of the suspect other than his face was partially covered and he was wearing a red shirt,” police said in a media release today.

Police have urged persons with information about the incident to contact the RVIPF Intelligence Unit at 368-9339.
