    Desperado !

    • Instead of having Police at the new Price Rite in Warwick every day …………………………………………

  2. Hmm says:

    Catch them, parade them getting cat o nine at the flag pole. Charge a fee and lower our national debt! I’d pay to watch this monster get the discipline they deserve! Hope the lady comes out of this ok.

  3. Educated says:

    What in the world am I reading??

  4. elliotness says:

    maybe they should disclose the type of bike.. for instance Nuovo.. airblade. scoopy.. it would help

  5. The Night Watch says:

    There should be some decent CCTV footage with this one …… Hope they get the guy.

  6. Mainy says:

    Thats deep! How much cash did they really get away with by robbing the kiosk

  7. hmmm says:

    Parents, WAS THIS YOUR CHILD !

    • Verly says:

      What do the parents have to do with it?? With the exception of a parent harbouring a known criminal, nobody is responsible for somebody else’s actions!!!

      • Anonymous says:

        I’d beg to differ on that. Not to absolve responsibility from the person who committed the offense, but a lot of our young men would be a lot better off if they came from stable homes.

        • Time Shall Tell says:

          There are a number of individuals that have committed atrocious acts plus have long rep sheets that came from stable homes & have siblings that have prominent roles in society right on up to today. Individuals are capable of individual thought, even if directed in the correct path from an early age.

        • Verly says:

          In some cases that may be true. However, as someone that worked within the legal system for many years, I beg to differ as well. I have seen wonderful parents, married with a stable home, end up with some seriously messed up kids. Then on the other hand, I’ve seen terrible, neglectful parents end up with kids that beat the odds and do really well. My point is, we cannot just point fingers and blame the parents in all cases.

        • @Anonymous, did the Cup Match freaks come from stable homes?
          Mmmmmmm

          • Anbu says:

            U still on about that cupmatch non event?! Still dont get why it was such a big deal. Ever been to a soca concert? Much more dirtness goes on at those functions. Or was it simply because they were white?

            • Toodle-oo says:

              Between that and all of his imaginary ‘gates’ it’s his own personal form of Viagra.

  8. No says:

    yo what is wrong with this island lol

  9. voltage says:

    I pray the injured cashier recovers quickly and I leave it to the BPS to do their job, catch the robber and bring this person before the courts tomorrow morning.

  10. Datbye says:

    Becoming one said place to live, get out if u can.

    • Teddy says:

      Not saying this is correct, but this happens every hour in the USA. Welcome to the real World.

  11. ImJustSayin says:

    They couldn’t have gotten much. I don’t think they hold much cash in there. It seems the coward staked it out first and took advantage of a female on duty in that Kiosk. Catch him and beat him.

  12. SMFH says:

    Odd. Usually that area is pretty active that time of night. Of course the coward obviously watched and waited for a female cashier to be alone. LOSER. I know the coward is reading this and delighting in being a LOSER who has to steal.

    Hope the cashier wasn’t chasing after him, they don’t pay you enough to go after thieving losers like that.

  13. Triangle Drifter says:

    Too bad gas station & other places that have been robbed lately don’t have cans of bear spray or skunk scent spray, something that cannot be washed off easily.

    Should be easy to catch the bad guys smelling so nice.

    • Verly says:

      I don’t think spraying a potentially violent criminal is such a wise move.

  14. Smh says:

    It’s only going to get worse, people who unfortunately don’t have jobs that need money to live will resort to anything to get money!

  15. jay says:

    This island is done come on Bermuda wake up. Berfore it’s to Late.

  16. Something is up says:

    All these robberies. Wonder if someone making these quick picks to either get a firearm or leave the island for a bit after the dirty deed is done.

  17. Sunfish says:

    I have to question why there is a female on her own at night? Where are the rest of the staff? Easy pickings if there is no visible males on site IMOP.

  18. The Hon Edward N. T. Case. ABF BMF hons. says:

    Jokes aside it s pretty disgusting and cold. A new level of disgusting.

  19. pot puller says:

    The sentences are to light. Time to relook at the, guilty with association auto 15 yrs. Guilty of crime 30 yrs. Time to send home a message.

  20. Shari-Lynn Pringle says:

    CTV camera MUST play a role in capturing these miscreants or someone needs to explain why it isn’t working!!

    • Rhonda says:

      Looky here, had me running to my dictionary , so I can agree with you.

  21. clearasmud says:

    I have to agree with sunfish that this was too easy. there was a time when the Police went around and advised small businesses on proper security and given the recent slate of robberies I would have expected them to do a review of vulnerable sites. I am not blaming the Police but here is an opportunity for them to be more proactive.

  22. swing voter says:

    Even when caught juries don’t convict the little bastids. Why don’t juries give a public explanation how they rationalize a not guilty verdict

  23. Can't fool me says:

    If I stop a person from robbing my boss is my boss gonna give me a raise????NOOOOOOOOOOOOO………HERE U GO MR ROBBER

  24. mmm says:

    All business establishments need to look more closely at their operations to see if there are any weak points in security, then again there is only so much you can do. These types of crimes are over in a matter of seconds. Any kind of uniformed presence is costly, and has to be added to the cost of the product sold or service provided. These criminals use some form of transporation, if they had to go thru 4 or 5 vehicle check-points a week this might reduce their ill-intentions. Do hope the lady will be okay. Let,s see more Police and Regiment manning check-points.

  25. Jay Maloy says:

    The PLP put Bermuda 2 billion in debt. You can’t remove that much capital from a local economy without rampant crime springing up all over the place. When less people are getting the opportunities to be economically viable then more people start robbing and stealing to make up for it.
