Robbers Target Atlantic Restaurant

Just before eight on Wednesday night, two armed robbers held up the popular Atlantic Restaurant located on miles three and half on the Philip Goldson Highway. While the thieves managed to get away with a small amount of money, the situation was dangerous because a number of patrons were inside the restaurant purchasing food. Fortunately no one was injured. ASP Alejandro Cowo tells us more about the robbery.

One of them pointed a gun at the proprietor and he handed over a small amount of cash. The persons thereafter came out running and made their escape through the Philip Goldson Highway.”
