UPDATED: Two sought in robbery, shooting incidents

Police are searching for two men who they believe were involved in an armed robbery at the Red Bay jerk chicken stand and a separate assault on a man on Linwood Street in George Town on Saturday.

Shots were fired at both locations, police confirmed.

Following the armed robbery at 9:15 p.m. at the jerk stand near the Lighthouse School on Shamrock Road, the two suspects made off on foot with a quantity of cash. “While leaving the scene a number of shots were discharged,” police said in a statement. No one was injured.

Around 8:20 p.m. the same day, police were called to Linwood Street, following a report of a man being shot. However, investigations revealed the man had not been shot; he had been hit in the head with a blunt object. He also suffered lacerations to his arm. His injuries appeared to be non-life- threatening, police said.

The two men involved were seen running toward Burke Maude Plaza on Shedden Road. “It appears that a number of shots were fired before the two left the scene,” according to the police press release.

Anyone with information on either incident is asked to call 949-4222.
