The police in St. Ann said they have not located the four gunmen who held up and robbed two Cable and Wireless employees yesterday.

The police said the employees were at a telephone site at Walkerswood in the parish, when they were approached by three gunmen who robbed them of their cellular phones, money and jewellery.

The workers were reportedly forced into one of the two company vehicles that were parked at the site and taken to Hinds Town in St. Ann.

One employee was reportedly shot and both men were pushed from the vehicle while travelling to Hinds Town.

The police said the vehicles were later intercepted in Lluidasvale, St. Catherine, but the gunmen managed to escape.
