A man pretending to be a parent robbed a school in George Town Thursday.
Police say they were called to a report of suspicious activity at the private school Truth for Youth on Walker Road around 9.15 a.m.
A spokeswoman for the RCIPS said: “When they arrived at the location they learned that in fact a robbery had taken place. A member of the school staff had been pushed to the ground by a man posing as a parent asking to register his child, and a quantity of cash that had been gathered in registration fees had been taken.
“The incident had occurred around 8.30 a.m. and the man departed the premises of the school in the direction of Boilers Road. The only description available at this time of the suspect is that he brown-skinned, wearing a purple shirt and a black backpack.”
