They were said to be after money they felt was kept there. However, after they realized that the safe which they were targeting was locked, they assaulted a female employee before making good their escape in a waiting car.

Since the arrest and release of three persons, the police are yet to give an update on the progress of the investigation.

All efforts to contact ‘A’ Division commander Clifton Hicken and Crime Chief Leslie James for an update, proved futile.
