Bahamas acting PM robbed at gunpoint


NASSAU, Bahamas — Acting Prime Minister Philip ‘Brave’ Davis was robbed at gunpoint in his home in The Bahamas early Monday morning.

Police said three masked men entered his home around 7 am after they assaulted and robbed Davis’s chauffeur.

Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade, who was on the scene said neither Davis nor his wife, Anne Marie, was injured during the hold up.

The masked men entered the property through the gate and forced the chauffeur to take them into Davis’s house, Greenslade said.

The commissioner said police believe it was a crime of opportunity. The assailants made their getaway in a silver Honda. Greenslade said police believe the crime is connected to a car theft that took place around 1 am on Monday in the western district.

Plans were immediately put in place to strengthen the security surrounding Davis’s home.

National Security Minister Dr Bernard Nottage and Minister of State for National Security Keith Bell were on the scene but neither of them gave a statement.

Davis is acting as prime minister as Prime Minister Christie left the country to attend a memorial for former South African President Nelson Mandela, who died on Thursday.
