POSTED: 09/18/13 12:46 PM

St. Maarten – A 36-year-old Pointe Blanche resident, identified by the police as K.H., became the victim of a failed daylight robbery yesterday afternoon. Around 1.40 p.m. police patrols and an ambulance sped to the parking lot behind police headquarters next to the Richardson building on the Walter Nisbeth Road where they found the victim sitting in his pickup truck.

The man was conscious but he was bleeding from a gunshot wound to the right side of his body. He told officers that three masked young men had threatened him near his home with a gun and demanded he gave them everything he had. One of the robbers shot the victim, and then the three fled the scene without taking anything.

The victim drove his truck to the parking lot where he was found. Paramedics treated him on the spot and then sent him to the Sint Maarten Medical Center for further treatment.

The Special Robbery Unit and the Forensic Department are investigating the case.
