The police say they are investigating an armed robbery at about 11.40 last night at John Street, Lodge where contractor Dennis Archer of Alexander Village, EBD, was attacked, robbed and shot. He was set upon by two men armed with guns.
Investigations revealed that Archer was on his motorcycle in front of a friend’s residence when he was held up by the men who drove up in a motor vehicle. They demanded the jewellery which he was wearing at the time. The victim resisted and was shot to his left thigh and right ankle by the perpetrators who escaped.
Archer was admitted a patient at the GPHC.
