Four Men Assault & Rob Man At The Beach Bar

May 9, 2016

[Updated[ Around 3am on Saturday [May 7] police responded to a robbery at the Beach Bistro on Front Street in which four males assaulted the male victim inside the bathroom and grabbed a chain from  his neck.

A police spokesperson said, “Around 3am on Saturday 7th May, police responded to a report of a robbery, which occurred at the Beach Bistro on Front Street.

“It was reported that 4 unknown males assaulted the male victim inside the bathroom area of the establishment. The suspects grabbed a chain from the victim’s neck and left the area.

“As a result of the attack, the victim received a bump to the back of his head and swelling to the face.

“One of the suspects was described as dark complexioned, of stocky build approximately 5’ 8″ tall and in his mid twenties. Police are appealing to anyone who may have information on this incident to call 295-0011.”

Update 10.42pm: Rick Olson, the owner of the Beach, said that when there is an incident the police need to identify themselves to the Manager and “that never happened.”

Mr Olson said that the “alleged victim” was “asked to leave as he was intoxicated and never said anything about being robbed at the time of his removal,” and also added that he “continually attempted to regain entry.”

“The alleged victim contacted us around noon the next day reporting that he was robbed. That was the first we heard of it. We told him to contact the police and they followed up shortly after,” Mr Olson added.

Update May 10, 9.52am: The victim contacted us and he disputes Mr Olson’s statement that he was asked to leave, saying: “They never asked me to leave and I was never escorted out.”

He also said, “I went to the police the very next day and followed up with a report,” which seems to back up what Mr Olson said about the police being informed the next day.

He said he is a visitor to the island, from the United States, and frequently travels to Bermuda.

    • SMH! says:

      Are you being sarcastic? I am not surprised in the slightest!

    • Son of Beach Bistro says:

      This is far from the first time this has happened at the Beach. If they cant manage the bar, keep thugs out or if they do not have adequate security – take away their liquor license.

    • Serious Though says:

      Correction, I’m NOT ….

  4. Lizard mon says:

    This has a certain gang written all over it why dont the police target them like they do others they let one guy go many times for savage assults but the bps seem like they fail to go after this group of misfits i wonder….

    • John says:

      What you should be asking is why does the owner of the Beach let them in! When all the other clubs on Front Street tell them NO! Nice place to eat but after 9pm I leave.

  5. Navin Pooty Tang Johnson says:

    There has to be footage of this group and they are not wearing helmets

  6. Fantasea says:

    Doesn’t surprise me there is always a few bad eggs going into that place causing trouble. Stopped going there after 11.00pm

    • Wahoo says:

      Same here that place dodgey.

    • Nanny Pat says:

      It’s a total gang hangout. Who in their right mind would go there if they aren’t in that gang? Shame on management for allowing this but clearly it’s all about money. GREED.

  7. Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

    These establishments need Top Flight Security…no nonsense bouncers…bounce these punks off of the pavement then ask questions.

  8. Young Adult says:

    Around 3am on Saturday and the police are usually sitting outside of there at 3am on weekends smh crazy

  9. mrgibbons says:

    THE OWNER needs to STOP allowing these thugs into his establishment and ruining his business’s reputation! TAKE BACK YOUR BAR! it is not how it used to be there. seems like they value money more than their reputation and peoples safety there.

  10. smh says:

    That Place needs to be closed up. Every single week there is something that happens inside that establishment. Sickening.

  11. john doe says:


  12. Answer says:

    Hey Rick do you have cameras at the Beach? Put their photos on Bernews.

  13. Lennie says:

    They need the Red team of Security Guards to come back….these idiots in blue can’t handle it.

  14. Terry says:



  15. Vern says:

    The Blue Security is doing a good job no nonsense team and not tryna be friends with the trouble makers. Good job to the Blue Security I think you guys are doing great.

  16. Coffee says:

  17. Reilly says:

    • BDA guy says:

      yes it is he is in the OBA crowd

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      What a joke lmfao!! All about the big bucks at the end of the day sadly!

  18. Serious Though says:

    No Surprises here.. what you see is what you get

  19. Rick Olson says:

    There is almost ZERO TRUTH to this report I question the whole situation . We have top of the line camera’s that the police have access to.
    In addition we had a full compliment of security on hand subcontracted from a top private firm,

    • OMG!!!!!!!! says:

      So everyone on the Island wants to know……… why did ZBM just report estimated 40 incidents of robbery theft or assault on the news in relation to your Beach CLUB??? That place is not safe and I’m glad the Government is taking the steps to fix it!!

      Start at 9:20 on the ZBM news.

      • sage says:

        They ain’t gonna do s#!t, business as usual.

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      top private firm….in bermuda LMFAO!! Thanks for the laugh…these guys aink bouncers they’re friends!

  20. BDA guy says:

    stop you lies

    • Serious though says:

      @BDAguy Watch ZBM tonight news on this website..that’s TRUE, ..

  21. mmm says:

    It will be interesting to know if there was cctv in the club fully capable of videotaping all persons involved in this robbery. It will very very interesting if no one appears in court in the next week or so.

  22. Rick Olson says:

    We have cameras everywhere except the bathroom which would be a good idea as a preventative measure as most problems start there.

    • RBYC member says:

      So all 40 problems happened in the bathroom. LOL

  23. Serious though says:

    Lets call a spade a spade not a big spoon, if there are problem , fix it, no spin off required from owners, next time the worst could happen. Sometimes love of $$$$$ is just the start of serious repercussions ..Don’t forget, Bermudians will eventually find out the truth if they haven’t yet., and share it too

    Remember this: There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don’t know we don’t know. Donald Rumsfeld

  24. Rick says:

    BERMUDIANS will find out the truth bring your popcorn I will be vindicated .

  25. Carl ONeal says:

    I am the victim i came forward that night and followed up with a report I even messaged rick olson on facebook. He is lying.

  26. I love bermuda says:

    I am a 30 plus female, for as long as I’ve been going out I’ve love to go to the Beach but ever since these ‘lil’ wanna be gangster’s have been going there, I like many have stopped going there after 9pm or 10pm since the Beach got rid of the Red Shirts. My reason for this is because even though the Red Shirts were friendly with EVERYONE they had the respect of these wanna be’s so there wasn’t hardly any issues,yes there were some. I’m not saying there weren’t any. Now I will never step foot in the Beach after 9pm I’ve been once and I’m sorry but the new security do not have the respect of anyone that comes in or out of the Beach.
