Caught on Video: Suspected Robber Pursued and Captured

An alleged robber or would-be robber is detained.  It all played out in the streets of the city and captured on video. The incident is said to have happened this morning when a man on bicycle was pursued by a vehicle. It is believed he was attempting to get away from a robbery at one of the business establishments on the Philip Goldson Highway. Though he tried to evade a vehicle, he was captured. Here is a look at the video with Dalila Ical.

Surveillance footage has been released involving a police chase of a robber. The video shows a man wearing a cap riding a bicycle on the Philip Goldson Highway from the direction of Benny’s into Chetumal Street. As he does this, a heavily tinted, black pickup slows down at the pedestrian ramp, then reverses. It makes a U turn over the median strip, speeds around the round-about but comes to a sudden halt at the junction of Chetumal Street.  Seconds later, the same man is seen riding his bicycle back onto the Philip Goldson Highway. The black pickup follows him over the pedestrian ramp. Another angle of the footage shows the cyclist attempted a desperate flee, staying in the middle of the highway. But seconds after, the black pick up catches up to him. The suspect falls off his bicycle and persons exit the vehicle and apprehend him.  It is unclear whether the suspect was successful in his heist at Benny’s or whether he attempted to rob the establishment. But he was placed in the vehicle and carried away.
