Police are investigating an armed robbery committed on Hudson Thompson, a 28-year-old resident of Albouystown, Georgetown, who was robbed of a gold and diamond chain valued at $2 million.

The robbery allegedly occurred at about 19:00 hrs yesterday (Tuesday) at James Street, Albouystown, by two men, one of whom was armed with a handgun.

Investigations disclosed that the victim was on James Street, seated in front of a shop when he was approached by the two suspects on a black motorcycle.

The pillion rider dismounted, pulled out a handgun from the crotch of his pants, pointed it to the victim and demanded that he handed over his chain. The victim tried to resist, but the suspect discharged a round in his direction, snatched the chain and dealt him a lash to his forehead with the gun, causing him to receive injuries. After that, the two perpetrators made good their escape on the motorcycle, east along James Street. No one was injured.

Persons in the area were questioned, and one 9mm spent shell was recovered at the scene.
