By BBN Staff: Police are investigating a report of an armed robbery at Ladyville.
At around 6:30 p.m. yesterday, the employees at Bowen and Bowen’s Ladyville Sales Center, located on the factory compound, were victims of a robbery at gunpoint.
Two persons entered the compound and proceeded to tie up the employees and steal assorted items.
Bowen and Bowen issued a statement saying that an armed security guard, who was on duty at the time, confronted the robbers and was successful in halting their escape.
Unfortunately, the security guard was outnumbered, and a struggle ensued during which shots were fired.
The two robbers managed to escape the premises without the stolen items but did take the security guard’s weapon.
Initial reports are that one of the robbers was injured in the confrontation and has been apprehended.
“B&B|Beverages is deeply troubled by this incident, which has understandably shaken the employees involved and our entire B&B Family. We will provide support to our members who have been affected by this incident,” Bowen said in a statement.
