POLICE arrested two men – one wanted for attempted murder and the other on bail for murder – moments after they had robbed a man at gunpoint late Monday night. One wore an ankle monitoring bracelet. The incident occurred in the Fox Hill area around 10pm.
According to reports, the victim was at his Freddie Munnings Estates home when two men armed with a handgun robbed him of cash and a cell phone. The suspects then sped off in a Kia Reo.
Police were immediately alerted. Officers from the Mobile Division spotted the vehicle after it had collided with another car on Springfield Road.
The suspects attempted to run into nearby bushes, but were quickly caught by police.
The taxi driver, who was robbed by the men, said he intentionally slammed his vehicle into the getaway car to prevent the suspects from escaping. Police arrived on the scene moments after the crash.
One of the suspects was on bail for murder and was wearing a court ordered electronic monitoring device and the other, Raven Cooper, was wanted by police for attempted murder.
Police issued a wanted poster for the Pinewood Gardens resident last week. Police recovered a handgun and items taken during the robbery from the suspects.
Investigations are continuing.
