Witnesses said the suspect’s head was covered by a jacket and that he was carrying what appeared to be a firearm when he entered the store just after 7pm Friday.

No shots were fired and no one was injured as a result of the incident.

The suspect is described as being of chubby build with a dark complexion. He was wearing a black and white shirt, blue jean pants and had a black jacket in his possession.

Anyone who was in the area at the relevant time who may have information about the robbery, or who saw the suspect making off from the scene on the red bicycle, is asked to contact George Town CID on 949-4222 or Crime Stoppers 800-8477(TIPS).
