St. Maarten – Three armed men robbed Island Finance yesterday morning, which is located on the Walter Nisbeth Road, where they fled the scene with only a small amount of cash, police spokesperson Ricardo Henson said.
The suspects, all dressed in black clothing with their face covered, stormed into the establishment where one suspect attacked the security guard and the other two jumped over the counter and demanded money from the employees and threatened them.
The police arrived at the location to investigate the case and paramedics were called to treat the security guard who suffered from a wound to his head and to help the employees.
A possible suspect was arrested in the Philipsburg area shortly after the robbery. The detectives from the Special Robbery Unit are investigating the case.
