(CMR) Two attempted robberies are being reported in the community last night within minutes of each other.
The first attempted robbery occurred shortly before 8:00 p.m. at the East End Rubis on Sea View Road. The culprit is described as a short black man wearing all black and a mask.
He entered the gas station and demanded money and fired a shot from a small handgun. No injuries are being reported and no money was actually handed over to him. Police attended the scene and whilst that report came in we were also informed of another attempted robbery occurring in Bodden Town just a few hundred feet away from the Bodden Town Police Station.
In that incident, a culprit attempted to rob the local DVD store in the Gun Square area. Again no injuries were reported.
These are developing stories and updates will be provided once available.
