Armed robbers boarded an anchored tanker at the Jose Terminal Anchorage in Venezuela on March 28, according to IMB Piracy Reporting Centre.
As reported by IMB, five robbers armed with knives and a pipe wrench boarded the tanker and tied up the aft watch keeper.
The robbers subsequently broke into the ship’s paint store, the IMB notice said.
Once the alarm was raised and crew mustered, the robbers escaped with stolen ship’s stores.
This is the second robber attack on commercial ships to take place at the same anchorage within seven days.
The first one occured on March 21 and saw three robbers board a crude oil tanker. The perpetrators threatened a crew member with a knife and stole his radio before escaping.
