A male resident of Sweden was robbed of his camera at Old St Joseph Road, Laventille, around 9.30 Monday morning, the foreigner told police. The Swede was walking under the overpass when he felt a pull from behind. He turned around and saw a man running off with his Nikon B300 camera and lens valued at $22,300. The suspect, who escaped in the direction of Beetham Gardens, was described as being of African descent, dark in complexion, approximately six feet tall, slim built and with a low haircut.
