Police say they have made significantly breakthrough in the armed robbery case that involved two persons affiliated to the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, in West Farm.
“A man is in custody assisting with the investigation into the armed robbery that took place in West Farm on June 18,” a Police statement reads.
“The missing vehicle, P 1897, was also found and taken into Police Custody,” the release added.
Authorities did not divulge where the vehicle was found.
“At approximately 11:20 p.m. on Tuesday, Jason Ghuman of Mattingley and Hannah Adamson of West Farm were driving along the Island Main Road from Ross University to West Farm in P 1897 driven by Ghuman. When they got to the residence of Adamson, they were approached by an armed assailant who demanded money. Ghuman exited the vehicle and the assailant opened fire and shot Ghuman in his right instep while Adamson was grazed by a bullet to the back of her head. The assailant then fled the scene in Ghuman’s vehicle,” the initial statement on the robbery read.
It is not clear if the Ghuman is still hospitalized.
Police have also confirmed that the United States Embassy reached out to them in relation to the armed robbery, in what authorities describe as “standard procedure” with incidents that involve US citizens.
Investigations are still on-going into the matter.
