Tobago vendor Robert McCarthy says he is living in fear.
This after an attempted robbery at his businessplace in Crown Point last Friday.
Since the incident, McCarthy said he has tried to make a report to the Crown Point police on six occasions, but claims officers there told him to return home and they would call him.
The matter is now being investigated by senior police officers in Tobago.
McCarthy said last Wednesday a man with a gun approached his son and demanded food.
“Earlier in the week, my son told me that same guy take his gun out, throw $20 to him and said give him some food fast, and showed him his gun,” McCarthy said.
He said on Friday he was threatened by the same man, who is known to have a gun and is associated with a gang in Tobago West.
