    Three bandits escaped with a vehicle and other items after robbing and beating a 32 year old prison officer outside his Trincity home yesterday.

    The Express Newspaper reports that the victim was in his Hyundai Tucson SUV around 1am, when a black X-trail pulled up with 3 armed men.

    The officer was reportedly ordered to exit his vehicle and lie on the ground during which time he was beaten about the body.
