The police have arrested two suspects — a 16-year-old male and a 17-year-old male — after an 18-year-old male was “robbed of his motorcycle at knifepoint.”

A police spokesperson said, “Around 11:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 2nd, 2023, an 18-year-old male attended Hamilton Police Station and reported that he was robbed of his motorcycle at knifepoint on South Road, near the junction with Collectors Hill, Smiths.

“The 18-year-old male told police he was riding west along South Road, Smiths, when three motorcycles travelling in the same direction pulled up to him as he approached St. Marks Church.

“The man kept riding west along South Road, when upon approaching the traffic lights at the junction of South Road and Collectors Hill, one of the cycles overtook him and blocked his path causing him to stop. A pillion rider on one of the cycles then brandished a knife and demanded he hand over his cycle.

“Acting on information provided, officers attended the area. While on patrol, they observed the suspects riding a separate stolen motorcycle.

“The suspects, a 16-year-old male and a 17-year-old male led officers on an extensive chase and were later intercepted.

“They were each found to be in possession of a knife. They were arrested and taken to Hamilton Police Station.

“Detectives from the Criminal Investigation Unit have commenced an investigation into the robbery report and anyone with information on this matter, is asked to contact Detective Constable, Janea Smith on 717-2290 or, via email –

    name shame put them out-side to walk barefoot on the hot road without shoes

  2. Real Deal says:

    also take away their licenses for bikes and cars for min of 2-3 years

  3. Real Deal says:

    all 3 bikes involved in the crime should also be impounded

  4. sage says:

    Burn ‘em. Good job by the cops, pity they couldn’t get the others. That is a serious crime and needs to be treated as such. Unfortunately the courts reward bad behaviour a lot.

  5. Toodle-oo says:

    Sixteen and Seventeen ! SMDH

  6. saud says:

    Which MPs are these ‘youths’ related to?
    Where are their pictures, what are their names?
    Is Bermuda serious about this, or is this what you voted for?

  7. Southampton says:

    Use the cane on them. Publish their names and pictures

  8. Triangle Drifter says:

    No, you can’t cane them. No, you can’t put them in the stocks. No, you can’t even put their names & faces in the media. No, you can’t take licenses away from them.

    What can be done to discourage this type of crime. It is theft involving violence. Court ordered compensation can be given to the victims that includes all costs incurred because of the crime. Travel documents can be seized until such compensation is paid. They may not own another vehicle until compensation is paid to their victim.

  9. Was a Bermudian says:

    Bring back the cat and nine tail.

  10. Why says:

    all of the responders that think punitive measures against these men (yes men) are NOT a deterrent.

    These MEN (yes men) were programmed for badness during their formative years. Research proves over and over what a child sees, hears, and is exposed to between birth and 8yrs old will determine his/her decision making, cognitive and intellectual development of the frontal lobe. We’ve raised an entire generation of defective personalities.

    • Real Deal says:

      yes this is very correct and my suggestions can help resolve that deficiency.
      having them push the stolen bike barefooted from where ever the police stopped them back to the location to where the bike was stolen will activate deeper frontal lobe thinking and self refection.
