A 58-year-old overseas-based woman and a 31-year-old male security guard were robbed this morning around 01:20hrs at Number 73 Village, Corentyne, Berbice.
Guyana Standard understands that the man and woman secured their home and went to a wake about 21:00hrs on Sunday in the village. Upon returning at about 00:45hrs, the woman claims she was napping when she was awakened by two men dressed in dark coloured clothing with masks and gloves. One of them pointed a small black gun at her head and demanded her gold chain and two gold finger rings, while the other bandit went into the bedroom.
Thereafter, they ventured downstairs where they were confronted by the second victim who had just driven into the yard. Upon seeing the bandits he ran and left the car with the keys in the ignition.
The two bandits then took the car and made good their escape with one gold chain valued $70,000; two gold rings valued $80,000; one Samsung cellphone valued $40,000; one Clark’s sneakers valued $16,000; one backpack valued $4,000; and one white Fielder wagon, PTT 864, value unknown.
Forced entry was seen to the door of the lower flat. Investigations are ongoing.
