WEDNESDAY, MAR. 16: A pair of gun-wielding bikers targeted motorcyclists during a 75-minute crime spree.

Some victims were knocked off their bikes while riding along and then held up at gunpoint.

Officers were called out to “several” similar armed robberies across three parishes between 10:30pm and 11:45pm on Monday night.

Police would not confirm exactly how many armed incidents took place but said that robberies had been reported in Devonshire, Pembroke and Warwick. A police spokesman told the Bermuda Sun last night that two men had been arrested in connection with the crime spree and were being questioned by detectives.

He added: “Between 10:30pm and 11:45pm on Monday, March 14th 2011 police received several reports of robberies and attempted robberies having taken place in the Devonshire, Pembroke and Warwick areas.

“The victims of these offences were motorcycle riders and the suspects are thought to have also been on a motorcycle.

“During the incidents one of the suspects brandished what appeared to be a firearm.”

Police are trying to trace a taxi driver who came across one of the armed robberies while it was in progress.

The victim was attacked as he drove along South Road in Warwick close to the Warwick Shell gas station on Monday night.

He was knocked off his bike and threatened at gunpoint. He suffered cuts and bruises during the robbery.

The spokesman said: “In particular police are interested in speaking with the driver of a white taxi which was travelling along South Road in Warwick in the vicinity of the Warwick Shell gas station who came across one of these robberies in progress.”

The suspects are described as two young black men believed to be in their 20s.

One is brown skinned while the other has a darker complexion.

Both were wearing dark coloured clothing and helmets with visors travelling on a white or dark coloured motorcycle.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the crime spree and are currently assisting investigators with their inquiries.

Officers investigating these crimes are appealing for the driver of that taxi or anyone with any information about these incidents to contact the Hamilton Criminal Investigation Unit on 295-0011 or the independent, confidential Crime Stoppers Bermuda hotline on 800-8477.
