2013-02-12 00:00

POLICE have appealed to anyone who might have information about a robbery that happened in Grimthorpe Road, Lincoln Meade, yesterday to come forward.

While a domestic worker was doing laundry at the back of the house, she was approached by three men who arrived in a white vehicle.

Police spokesperson Joey Jeevan said: “They confronted her and forced her into an en suite bathroom inside the house. They were armed with one handgun and they ransacked the house and fled in the vehicle.”

Jeevan said the suspects took a safe containing personal documentation, a flat-screen TV, jewellery, TV games and the domestic worker’s cellphone.

Anyone with information should contact the Alexandra Road police station at 033 845 7724.
