– discharge round in anger
It would appear as if today’s bandits are very hungry. Police are looking for two bandits who robbed a stallholder of some saltfish, margarine and a bottle of Chinese sauce on Saturday night.
Kaieteur News understands that 43-year-old Gregory Dubisette, a stallholder at the East Ruimveldt Market, was beaten with a gun and robbed of the items by the men who made good their escape on a motorcycle.
According to reports, at about 19:20 hours, Dubisette was sitting on his motorcycle in front of his yard at South Ruimveldt Gardens when the two bandits approached him.
One of the men pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the businessman and ordered him to hand over his property, thinking that he was carrying cash.
Dubisette reportedly refused and was struck on his helmet with a gun and subsequently relieved of five pounds of saltfish; two pounds of margarine and a bottle of Chinese sauce.
Realizing that they had only obtained food, the men apparently became angry and discharged a round from their weapon and made good their escape.
Police visited the scene but found no spent shells. No one has been arrested.
