A Cunupia man who tried to rob a woman of her car by getting into it at a red light and then beating the woman into submission on Carnival Monday has been arrested.
According to police, around 8.15 pm on Monday the victim was driving her red Volkswagen along Tunnel Drive, St Augustine, when she stopped at a red light.
The 27-year-old Cunupia man opened one of the car doors and got in. He then began beating the woman while pulling at the steering wheel.
The woman’s screams alerted passers-by, who called the police. The car was later intercepted along the Eastern Main Road. Police did not say whether the woman was still in the vehicle.
