Robber caught after losing his mask
An alleged robber was arrested by the police on Sunday after his face mask fell off while tussling with a taxi driver he reportedly robbed at gunpoint.
The police have identified the man as Antwan Lowe, otherwise called Jay, of Job Lane, Christiana in Manchester.
Reports from the Kendal police are that about 7:15 a.m., the taxi operator picked up two male passengers along the roadway, one of whom pulled a firearm and demanded money.
On reaching a section of the roadway, the driver lost control of the vehicle which crashed in a perimeter fence.
The men exited the vehicle and a tussle ensued, during which the face mask of one of the robbers fell off.
Minutes later the accused was nabbed after the matter was reported to the police. He was seen in another taxi, attempting to leave the area when he was arrested.
Lowe, 20, has since been charged with robbery with aggravation and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.
