Furthermore, last time when the exercise was conducted in Port of Spain, the officers arrested one suspect under the charge of robbery.

The authorities conducted a mobile patrol exercise in the surrounding area of Republic Bank Independence Squared, Port of Spain, at around 10:30 am.

The two officers, Cpl Gonzales and PC Deo, were approached by the victim about a robbery, as two men entered the house of the victim and took away his Samsung cellular phone, valued at $4000 and $320 in cash.

The assailants demanded more money from the victim and gave him many blows to his head with a firearm. The assaulter forcibly took the victim to the Republic Bank in a silver Nissan Wingroad and asked him to withdraw the money from his bank account.

Subsequently, the victim saw the police patrol and alerted them about the situation. Therefore, the police chased the car and arrested the assailant.

The assailant has been identified as a 41-year-old man, a resident of Winston Mahabir Street, San Fernando. The accused was later taken to Besson Street Police Station for further investigations.

The residents of the Island Nation have extended their gratitude towards Police officers for being so active and always being available for citizens.
