Residents from a section of Union have called for sustained police presence following a series of armed robberies on the road between KM 2 Solutions and the Dame Pearlette Louisy Primary School in the community.
Reports are that between Sept. 13 and 19, at least six persons, including KM 2 Solutions employees, were robbed of money and other valuables by two males, one armed with a gun and the other with a knife. Robberies have also taken place in the past.
Luckily, the victims were not harmed.
A resident, speaking on condition of anonymity, said: “Two girls were robbed on the 13th (of September). Other people were robbed in the week of their phones and money.
The resident said the culprits usually hang out next to the school.
“All they say is pass it,” the source said.
The robbers are very bold, according to residents. They commit the crimes at any time of the day.
“They don’t hide.”
“At least have some police presence there,” one resident requested of the authorities. “Mostly on mornings, Monday to Saturdays.”
