The incident occurred on Thursday, 10th March, 2011 at the Cyber Link Internet Café and Mini Mart at Port Zante.
According to a police report, three armed individuals entered the establishment and executed their plan to rob.
“At approximately 2:30 pm on Thursday 10 March 2011 police at Basseterre received a report that there had been a robbery at Cyber Link Internet Café and Mini Mart at Port Zante.
