The police in St Catherine have launched a manhunt for gunmen who robbed a businessman on the compound of Juici Patties in Bog Walk in broad daylight on Thursday.
It is reported that about 11:30 a.m., the businessman had just left a financial institution and went to the popular eatery.
As he was about to exit from his SUV, he was reportedly pounced upon by two armed men on a motorcycle.
They assaulted him and relieved him of an undetermined sum of money.
A policeman ran from inside the food store and engaged the robbers in a shoot-out but they escaped.
Police investigators subsequently visited the premises to comb the scene for forensic and ballistic evidence.
The area was cordoned off and dozens of customers turned away.
