Cops running into problems with alleged 'downtown' serial robber probe
Created : 12 June 2019
The police are saying that while they have apprehended a man who they believe has been behind a series of robberies in downtown Kingston over the last month, despite the major ‘breakthrough’, they are now faced with the prospect of having to release the suspect without him being charged for any offence.
From indications, it appears that so far not enough evidence has emerged to lay any charge against the suspect.
“The man was held after he reportedly slashed the hand of a woman and stole her bag on Friday, and was about to escape, when members from a police team managed to apprehend him,” said a detective on the case.
The police said based on the limited support from members of the public over the last two days, they are again calling on persons who may have fallen victims to the reported criminal acts that the accused is believed to have figured in, to come forward.
