Two held over West Bay mugging

Two men are in custody following Tuesday’s mugging on Boatswain Bay Road in West Bay.

The incident happened just after 03:00PM, when a man left a shop.

He was approached by two men he knew who threatened him, assaulted him and stole jewellery and personal items before fleeing the scene. No weapons were used but the victim sustained minor injuries, a police statement said.

Officers searched for the suspects, who subsequently turned themselves in to the West Bay Police Station. The two 18-year-olds, both of West Bay, have been arrested on suspicion of robbery and remain in custody as the investigation continues.
