Man With Dreadlocks And A Bandage On His Hand Holds Up Mountain Top Gas Station
FREDERIKSTED – A man with dreadlocks and a bandage on his hand held up an Estate Diamond service station early Sunday evening, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department.
The 911 Emergency Call Center got notification of a robbery at the Mountain Top Gas Station in Frederiksted at 6:10 p.m. Sunday, the VIPD said.
A gas station attendant told police he was inside his booth when a tall, black man with dreadlocks approached him with a handgun.
The man demanded all the money the attendant had, so he turned over an undetermined amount of cash to the gun-wielding man, police said. The robber then fled the scene on foot.
The attendant described the suspect as having been a tall, black male with dreadlocks, with a bandage on his hand, wearing a brown shirt.
No one was injured during the incident, and the matter is still under investigation by police.
In June 2014, two masked armed men robbed three men and struck one of them on the head during the robbery at Mountain Top Gas Station.
