Brit couple robbed of £6,000 at knifepoint on Jamaica holiday after they were left stranded on roadside… – The US Sun

A BRIT couple were robbed of £6,000 at knifepoint after they were left stranded on a road with a flat tyre in Jamaica.
The pensioners had just arrived in the island's capital, Kingston, when they were ambushed by local thugs.
The elderly couple, aged 71 and 82, were reportedly travelling to Manchester, Jamaica, when the terrifying incident happened.
Local media claimed the tourists were being driven by a woman in a grey Toyota when its tyre popped and the group stopped to repair it.
Shortly after, a group of men drove past and inquired about the accident.
According to police, the men informed them that a tyre shop was nearby and drove off.
The same car then returned not long after, and two men reportedly rushed the vehicle.
One of the crooks brandished a knife and held up one of the retirees and stole an envelope containing £6,000.
The other Brit was robbed of three smartphones and piece of luggage worth roughly £350 in total.
The woman driver was also mugged, and had her driver's licence and about £40 stolen.
Cops said the thugs were able to flee the scene but an investigation was underway.
A police spokesman said: "We are looking into it.
"We are seeking witnesses and hope to apprehend the suspects with their help."
