An Attempted Robbery in the West

Three delivery men are fortunate they were not hurt during an attempted hold up on Monday afternoon in Santa Elena.  Police say just before two p.m. they responded to reports of a robbery in progress at A and N Supermarket on the George Price Highway.  Bowen and Bowen deliveryman Simeon Baptist reported that while making deliveries with two coworkers, they were approached by two men. One held a gun on them and the other jumped into the pick-up cab and tried to open the safe box. When they realized it could not open, the would-be robbers fled on a black scooter. Police later found the scooter crashed in a drain. No one has been detained.
