NORTH SHORE — Two people waiting in a vehicle in the parking lot of a low-end condominium complex in La Grande Princesse after midnight were held up by three armed men early this morning, authorities said.
The 911 Emergency Call Center was notified of an attempted robbery at the Granada Del Mar Condominiums at 1:30 a.m. today, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.
“The victims reported being in the parking lot of the condominiums in their vehicle when they were approached by three armed males, wearing black masks,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said. “The suspects pointed their guns at the victims and demanded the victims exit the vehicle.”
The victims drove off and traveled to Judith’s Fancy, where they made contact with a security guard and called 911, according to Derima.
“The victims were not harmed during this incident,” he said.
