Police Commissioner Stephen Corbishley said he was “shocked at what took place at the Cake Shop on Curving Avenue yesterday, on what for the business was one of their busiest days of the year”
In a statement released after the armed robbery, he said: “A hard working local business was subject to a crime using firearms, which for those present, would be an unbelievably traumatic experience, as well as the removal of their hard work for that day.
“The Bermuda Police Service (BPS), is committed to identifying those responsible and placing them in front of the courts.
“We continue to appeal for any information from the community, that can assist in bringing those responsible to justice,” said Mr Corbishley.
“I am also extremely upset at a video created mocking this terrible crime and some of the throw away comments being made on social media about what took place with regard to the perpetrators taking hot cross buns, as well as the days takings.
“This is not a matter to laugh about for a small minority, when a hard working Bermudian business has been targeted by criminals.
“We should be collectively shocked at what has occurred.
“Equally, we need parts of our community who have information to stand up, do the right thing and work with the BPS to detect such acts.”
The incident occurred in broad daylight on the eve of Good Friday (April 1) shortly after 4:38pm, when two gunmen wielding guns made off an undisclosed amount of cash and “some hot cross buns”.
“One suspect is described as 6’ 2” tall, slim built, light complexioned and wearing a black hoodie with his face covered,” a spokesman said.
“The second suspect is said to be 5’ 3” tall, stockily built, also wearing a black hoodie with his face covered.
“It is believed the suspect fled the scene on a motorcycle.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Criminal Investigations Unit, or the main police number on 247-1744 or 295-0011 respectively, or the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
