A yacht with two persons on board anchored alone in Buccament Bay, St. Vincent around 1000HRS. At 0015HRS they were boarded by two men, armed with a gun and a knife who broke through the companionway door. The crew was held at gunpoint (head) and knifepoint (back). The armed men ransacked (and damaged) the yacht before roughly taking a ring from the woman’s finger, which later required medical treatment. Also cash, binoculars, fishing/diving gear, and a large flashlight were stolen.
After about an hour onboard the men left rowing a wooden boat. A report was made to the police and Coast Guard.
