One man was arrested hours after a report of robbery with aggravation in the San Juan yesterday.
A TTPS report states three persons reported to the police that they were at D Parts Man Limited, Saddle Road, San Juan, when two men, one armed with a gun, entered and announced a hold-up, around 12:18pm on Saturday 20th March, 2021.
