A victim of a robbery, right, confronts the man who allegedly robbed him following quick action by members of the Police Service along Tragarete Road, Port-of-Spain, yesterday.

Police officers stationed in St James and St Clair intervened yesterday as a group of close to 50 people were reported to have stormed one of the larger mas bands—robbing and beating patrons.

One man said the incident occurred near Nelson Mandela Park, as one of the band’s gathered for J’Ouvert celebrations.

Police said the band of “stormers” dashed through the band, grabbing cell phones and other valuables from masqueraders, before running off and mixing with another band.

Officers confirmed at least one man had been held in connection with the incident.
