A CANADIAN COUPLE’S visit was thrown into chaos yesterday when they were robbed in the presence of their two children while visiting the East Coast.

The incident occurred just before noon about 100 metres north of Barclays Park, along the Ermie Bourne Highway.

The family, consisting of a husband, his wife and their two children, were under a tree just a few metres from the water’s edge enjoying the conditions when a man approached them with a gun and robbed them.

“A number of electronic items were taken,” public relations officer of the Royal Barbados Police Force, Acting Assistant Superintendent David Welch, told the DAILY NATION yesterday.

Luckily for the Canadians, none of them was physically injured in the incident.

An abandoned car, a discarded sports cap, a bottle of water, a bunch of car keys and an opened container of scattered cherry tomatoes littered the crime scene a few metres from the roadside, underneath a casuarina tree.

The incident prompted a manhunt for the assailants by the Royal Barbados Police Force. (BA)
