The Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force is investigating the armed robbery of “Mem’s Pizza” in Nevis.
The incident occurred around 11PM on May 13th, 2023 after the business had closed.
Reports indicate that one of the proprietors, Jamilla Wallace of Cherry Garden, was
approached by two armed assailants while she was parked in the business’ yard. The
robbers demanded money and proceeded to steal her bag and phone. Upon realising
there was a robbery in progress, the staff closed the business’ entrance door. The
robbers then fired several shots at the building, wounding staff member Maria Merchant
of Stoney Grove. She is currently warded at the Alexandra Hospital and is in stable
condition. The Crime Scene Unit processed the scene and collected all items of evidential value. The
public will be appropriately updated as the investigation progresses.
