The woman reported to police that she was standing along the Southern Main Road, St. Helena around 6:45 am on Saturday August12, 2023, when she was approached by three men who demanded she hand over her belongings.

The men reportedly proceeded to relieve her of a quantity of cash, one cellular phone and a device before escaping in an awaiting vehicle.

An All-Points Bulletin was transmitted from the Command Centre and officers were able to intercept the vehicle in the Caroni district shortly after.

The three suspects were arrested and the stolen items recovered.

Investigations are ongoing into the matter.
