A 31-year-old T&TEC employee was robbed on the weekend while waiting for a taxi in Fyzabad.
Xavier Lake, of Siparia, was standing at the Junction of Mowl Village, Fyzabad on Saturday evening when a gold-coloured Nissan Almera pulled up.
He told police that a man armed with a knife stepped out of the vehicle and ordered that he hand over his items.
The suspect then proceeded to take Lake’s Samsung S8 cellphone valued at $3,200 before returning to the car to make his escape.
Lake reported the incident to the Fyzabad police, who are now conducting enquiries.
