Some time after 17:00 hours Rabindra Rooplall was walking along High Street when he was attacked by a man who dealt him a blow to his head and proceeded to rob him.

The two managed to overpower the bandit whom they beat. The bandit had already taken away the reporter’s camera which the men were able to recover.
