Two robberies in just a few hours in George Town

Detectives are investigating the theory that two separate robberies in George Town on Saturday where committed by the same armed man.

The first incident occurred around 5:30pm on April 13 when it was reported a lone man, dressed in dark clothing and brandishing a machete, approached a food truck on Crewe Road, George Town and demanded money.

He fled the location in the direction of Tropical Gardens with an unknown sum of cash.
A few hours later, just after 9pm, police were called to a restaurant on West Bay Road, where it was reported that a robbery had occurred.

It's alleged that a lone man dressed in dark clothing and armed with a machete entered the restaurant and demanded money.

The man fled the restaurant with an unknown amount of cash.

Detectives are investigating whether these incidents are linked, but do not have anything definitive to share at this time.
