GRAND Bahama police arrested three men in connection with an armed robbery in the Hawksbill area.
According to police reports, a man was held up and robbed of his cell phone shortly before 7pm on Friday by a gunman brandishing a black handgun.
Officers responded quickly and arrested three men who are assisting police in their investigations into the matter.
Officers also recovered the stolen cell phone and a black imitation firearm.
