Around 10:10pm on Sunday, September 25th police officers were dispatched to a reported armed robbery at Wok Express, junction of North Street and Union Street in Pembroke.

The Bermuda Police Service wishes to advise businesses of an increase of attacks on Bermuda based businesses in a sophisticated scam known as the ‘Business Email Compromise’, which targets employees who perform regular wire transfers.
The scammers use tools to make the email appear that it was initiated by the executive (‘spoofed’) or registering a domain similar to the targeted email account. Upon success, the payment officer then receives an authentic looking email from the executive, authorising the immediate wire payment to be sent overseas, the majority to China and Hong Kong.
An 18 year old male has been arrested in connection with the reported armed robbery of M. Soares and Son on Spanish Point Road in Pembroke around 3pm Tuesday, September 20th.
The investigation continues and anyone with information regarding this incident should contact Sergeant Clifford Roberts at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on 295-0011 or the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477.
Police and first responders attended a report of a road traffic collision that took place at 1:23pm today on Middle Road in Southampton in the area of Jews Bay. Details are sketchy but it appears that two motorcycles collided resulting in both parties being conveyed to the hospital with injuries that appear to be serious. The area has been cordoned off and traffic is presently being diverted whilst the scene is being processed by the relevant police officers.
