15 October Rajendra Bisram (43), a Point Fortin businessman, was kidnapped at about 10:10pm from his hardware store, Bisram and Sons, when four masked, armed men forced him into a pick-up truck after entering the building from the rear. The police said that no ransom demand had been received. A day and a half after the kidnapping, the victim walked into Point Fortin Police Station at 4:00am and reported that he had escaped from his kidnappers. He added that he could not identify them because they wore masks all the time.
