Guam – It was a busy weekend for police who are actively searching for a suspect who could be involved in two separate robbery cases that occurred early Sunday morning.
The first incident occurred in Tamuning. Guam Police Department spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao said. “The preliminary investigation suggests that a male victim was walking to work on Chalan San Antonio in Tamuning by the Baltej Pavilion, when he noted a silver Honda driving towards his direction.”
The victim told authorities that the operator of the Honda initiated the vehicle’s high beam, as an unknown male exited from the passenger door brandishing a hand gun and demanded money.
Police said the victim complied and was later instructed to walk away. Witnesses described the suspect as possibly local with a skinny build, wearing a red shirt, a fitted cap with a rag covering his face, and cargo khaki shorts with long socks.
Two hours later, police received a second robbery complaint, this time at the Barrigada Shell gas station.
Tapao said the preliminary investigation suggests that an unknown male entered the store brandishing a hand gun and demanded money.
According to the police, employees fled the establishment leaving the suspect in the store where he was able to make off with an undisclosed amount of cash. Witnesses described the suspect as possibly local with a slim build, dark complexion, wearing a brown hooded sweater, and beige pants.
“We are trying to see if there is any connection with other robberies that were reported in the past relative to the way they carried it out. If you look at the time frame, the first was at 3 o’clock and the second robbery was at 5 o’clock at the tri-intersection so is it related. We don’t know just yet,” Tapao said.
GPD is working to determine if the cases are related or isolated incidents. They are asking anyone who may have information on these cases to please call authorities at 472-8911.
