About an hour later, police received reports that a man was sitting in his 2004 silver coloured Honda Inspire at the corner of Wilson Track and Wulff Road, when two men armed with a handgun robbed him of his vehicle and sped off.

In the third incident around 4am, police say two men, one armed with a handgun, robbed a drug store on Baillou Hill road of an undetermined amount of money before fleeing the area on foot.

About two hours later, around 6am, a man armed with a handgun robbed a wholesale store on Charles Vincent Street of cash and fled the area on foot.

In the final incident, around midnight on Sunday, two men armed with a handgun robbed four men who were playing a game of dominoes in front of a home on Sunset Park. The men took cash, jewellery and cell phones before fleeing the area.
