A 42-year-old man was relieved of his car and other personal items by four armed bandits around 22:30hrs last night at Plum Park, Sophia.
Enquiries disclosed that the victim picked up two of the suspects from the Stabroek Market area in the said motorcar and they requested to go to Plum Park. On arrival in Plum Park, they requested to disembark on the main road.
As the victim stopped the motorcar, the other two suspects approached the vehicle on the right and left side, both armed with handguns.
The passenger/suspects exited the motorcar as the two suspects with guns pointed same at the victim and ordered him out of the car. They then relieved him of US$200, GYD$36,000, and one Plum cellular phone valued at $20,000.
The suspects then entered the car, a Toyota Belta bearing licence plate PWW 6623, and told the victim to run. As he was about to run, one of the suspects discharged two rounds in the air. The suspects then made good their escape in the said motor car.
Checks were made for the suspects but without success. Investigation is ongoing.
