Jul 31, 2008 News Comments Off on Botched robbery at Anna Catherina…
Following the attempted robbery and shooting of West Coast Demerara goldsmith, Jonathan Tulsie, and his mother, Rosalind Tulsie, the two have been transferred from the Leonora Cottage Hospital to the Woodlands Hospital in Georgetown where they are said to be recovering.
Tulsie, 33, sustained two gunshot wounds to his upper right thigh and the right side of his chest, while his mother received a single gunshot wound just above her right knee. She underwent surgery to remove the bullet which was lodged in her leg.
Despite their injuries, both Tulsie and his mother are reportedly in a stable condition and may be discharged from the hospital later today.
The injured male Tulsie explained that he had no idea who the two gunmen were, and said that the entire incident caught him by surprise.
To his knowledge, no one had been tailing him or had been behaving in a suspicious manner, he said.
At approximately 22:00 hours on Tuesday, two masked men shot Tulsie and his mother at their Anna Catherina home.
The robbery was foiled because Tulsie managed to close the front door of the house, locking the two bandits outside.
Finding themselves in this position, the bandits lingered in Tulsie’s yard for a few minutes before making their getaway in a car that was waiting for them. After the bandits left, neighbours rushed Tulsie and his mother to the Leonora Cottage Hospital.
Apparently, upon hearing the gunshots, someone contacted the Leonora Police Station but the police ranks reportedly took a considerable length of time to get to the scene.
The police later claimed not to have made any further progress in apprehending the would-be bandits.
