Thief makes off with bag of women's underwear

A THIEF made off with a quantity of women's underwear after he robbed a clothing vendor on Monday.

Police said that around 2.35 p.m. the vendor, of Kelly Village, Caroni, was awaiting transport at Church Street, Kelly Village, Caroni to go to Curepe when she boarded a white AD wagon.

There were two other passengers in the vehicle.

On reaching Harris Street, Caroni, one of the "passengers" announced a hold-up and told her: "If you make a sound or fight, I would shoot you."

The victim told police she became afraid, and the suspect in the front seat robbed her of her black shoulder bag containing women's lingerie.

She said she was ordered to leave the vehicle, which sped off west along Southern Main Road, Caroni.
