A phone thief was made the laughing stock of May Pen and surrounding areas in Clarendon after a man from whom he attempted to rob a cellular phone urinated on him.
The serious but comical incident occurred recently in the busy town centre.
Police have confirmed hearing about the incident but say they have received no official report on the matter. The cops also confirmed that there has been a recent upsurge in the cases of robbers grabbing phones and running off.
Information reaching THE WEEKEND STAR is that in a recent case, three men saw a middle-aged man walking with a BlackBerry phone in his hand.
It is understood the robbers came beside him and then one grabbed the phone and they started to run. To their surprise, however, the man pulled his firearm and fired three shots in the air and shouted "STOP".
THE WEEKEND STAR heard that the man who had the phone fell to the ground, while his other frightened cohorts quickly found hiding places. The man is said to have walked up to the alleged phone grabber who was still lying on the ground and reportedly said: "You a phone grabber, gi me mi phone".
As the thief quickly handed over the instrument, the man asked: "Weh you want me do pump two shot pon you or urinate pon you?"
As people began laughing, the culprit replied: "Urinate pon me sar, urinate pon me".
As the laughter grew, the man urinated on the phone grabber and turned and walked away.
No one could say how the phone grabber disappeared so quickly afterwards but many suspect it will be quite a while before he returns to the May Pen square
