Teenager attacked outside Sheraton Mall

Police have confirmed reports that a teenaged male was attacked and robbed at a bus stop outside of Sheraton Mall around midnight Tuesday.

The report was first made in a voice note circulated on Whatsapp in which the speaker claimed that his son was attacked and robbed by as many as six youngsters at the Christ Church mall.

“Last night my son tell me that five to six men robbed he by Sheraton and beat he up. He share blows but obviously he can’t beat six men.

“He got a cut over he eye and also some body blows but he also share some,” the speaker claimed.

The man also charged that two other
people were robbed outside of the mall last night.

When contacted by Barbados TODAY, Public Relations Officer of the Royal Barbados Police Force Acting Inspector Roland Cobbler confirmed that lawmen were investigating the incident.

Cobbler also revealed that the alleged victim was a 17-year-old male.

He however could not confirm the two other reported robberies.

Meanwhile, General Manager of the Sheraton Mall Kim King has expressed regret over last night’s incident and has urged shoppers to be on their guard at all times.

“We would like to remind our shoppers that their safety is paramount and we encourage all persons to be vigilant and to report any incidents to the nearest security officer,” she said.

Police have appealed to anyone with information that could assist in their investigations to contact the District ‘B’ Police Station at telephone numbers 437-4311; Police Emergency number 211; Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIPS (8477); or the nearest police station.

    Lol at safety is paramount! If he had run back to the mall, security would have left him outside, as usual!

    Poor street lighting, lack of security in public places after certain hours, a small percentage of cases resolved and the list goes on. No one is safe anymore, you might as well stay home. I think criminals at this point don’t respect or fear anyone in 2017 and who is to blame for it???? I wonder who is responsible for the safety of their citizens??? Guest who.

    Why woud six have to beat one. Something must be done with these thugs. When they are caught they’ll appear as though they are the victims and hail supporters as they’re escorted across the court yard to suggest that their actions were heroic. I hope they don’t interfere with anyone related to me. For their sakes.

    When the police go to arrest them then the people who don’t know the whole story will claim the police handled them too rough! It’s ok for 6 of them to beat up one man but only one policeman should touch them and gently too even when they’re fighting, kicking and biting the officer!!!!
