Police are searching for two suspects who abducted a bank teller after she entered a car on the Rio Claro taxi stand, on Tuesday October 19th.
According to a report, at about 6:15 am yesterday, the 29-year-old woman was waiting for a taxi at the Rio Claro/Princes Town hub to go to work, but she decided to travel by maxi taxi because there were no taxis at that time.
However, a silver coloured Tiida car pulled up on the taxi stand with a male passenger in the front seat. The victim came out of the maxi taxi and sat in the back seat of the car.
The driver drove off towards Princes Town along the Naparima Mayaro Road.
Guardian Media understands that when they got to Ramrattan Tire Shop, San Pedro, the passenger reportedly grabbed the woman’s purse—which contained her iPhone 7 and other items—and ordered her to lie down on the back seat with her head kept down.
The woman became fearful and complied.
When they got to Moruga Road, the driver got a call and stopped the car. He then came out together with the passenger and went to the trunk area. The woman grabbed her purse and escaped from the vehicle. She flagged down a passing car and went to the Moruga Police Station where she made a report.
The police reviewed CCTV footage, interviewed several people and searched for the suspects. However, the men are still at large.
PC Mahabir is investigating.
