The driver told RCIPS officers he picked up two men from Coe Wood Beach in Bodden Town Wednesday night and took them into the bus depot on Edward Street downtown.
Police said the two men asked to be taken to the Rock Hole area, which is right down the street from the depot. The driver refused to do so.
At that point, police said one of the men put an unknown object against the driver’s neck and demanded cash.
Police said the men got away with a small sum from inside the vehicle. They were pursued by other individuals at the bus depot, but made good their escape in the Mary Street area of George Town.
An extensive search was conducted involving armed officers, the RCIPS K9 Unit, the Marine Unit, and uniformed officers. No arrests were made.
No one was hurt in the robbery.
