Police detectives are currently conducting inquiries into a reported aggravated burglary that occurred at Pompano Beach Club in Southampton early Sunday morning (January 20th).

A spokesman said: “It appears that an intruder – described as an approximately 6 foot tall black male in his early to mid-20s wearing a dark coloured hooded top – gained entry into a room on the premises between 3:15am and 3:20am Sunday.

The burglar escaped with a quantity of U.S. cash after waking the visiting American couple staying in the room and demanding money, while brandishing a blunt object.

“The visitors involved – a 75-year-old man and his 73-year-old wife – were not hurt.
