Police have issued a renewed appeal for information that will lead to the arrest of two men who attacked and robbed a Four Star Pizza deliveryman last Wednesday (January 8) at the junction of West Side Road and Church Valley Lane in Sandys.
According to Detective Inspector Derek Berry, this “horrendous attack” left the 40-year-old victim with a serious gash to his neck and forearm, “which was also broken”.
“Police were told the victim was assaulted and robbed by two other males – one armed with a machete and one with a knife,” he said.
“The suspects then escaped – one on foot and the other on a motorcycle.”
The incident occurred around 8:30pm.
“The Bermuda Police Service is now renewing its appeal for anyone with information on this violent crime to please come forward and provide us with that information, as we work to further our investigation and bring the perpetrators to justice.
“Crime of any kind is of concern to all of us, but the use of weapons and the level of violence apparently used in this robbery is particularly troubling. Especially since all indications are that the attack was unprovoked and occurred whilst the victim was going about his normal course of business as a food delivery worker,” said Inspector Berry.
“Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the main police line on 295-0011 or alternatively provide the information anonymously via the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline, that number being 800-8477.”
