(CMR) Police responded to three reports of armed robbery last night, 2 December. All three robberies took place in just over an hour, with two masked men being the perpetrators in each incident.
The police have not said if they think the same perpetrators committed all three robberies.
Reports from the RCIPS are that shortly after 9:30 PM, officers responded to a report of a robbery at the Seven Mile Public Beach parking lot.

The men took a bag from him containing cash, and then fled the area in a white vehicle, in the direction of West Bay.
Shortly after 9:40 PM, officers responded to a report of a robbery on West Bay Road in the vicinity of Centennial Towers. It was reported that a woman was walking along West Bay Road when two masked men approached her. One of the men brandished a firearm and robbed her of a bag that contained cash and personal items.
The men were dressed in all black and wearing masks, and are described as being about 5’7” height.
