Two robbery attempts foiled
ONE MAN IS nursing a gunshot wound to the hand as two St Michael businesses were struck by at least one masked man last night in unsuccessful robbery attempts.
One of the incidents took place at Bayville Minimart where elderly shopkeeper John Drayton said he and his daughter had to beat a hasty retreat.
“It happened after 9:20 p.m. I was outside talking to a few friends and then come back inside to let my daughter know I was ready to close.
“I heard something like a gunshot and I went to the door to peep and a guy wearing a mask came round the corner and pull the door,” he said.
Drayton said he tried to hold the door shut but the man forced his way in, brandishing a gun. He said the man ordered them not to move, but they were not about to do that.
