Police on East Bank Demerara are looking for three bandits who robbed a Chinese restaurant on Friday night and a goldsmith shop yesterday morning.
Kaieteur News understands that the three are part of gang that is attacking business places on East Bank Demerara.
Businessman Munesh Naraine who owns the goldsmith shop at 142 Grove, East Bank Demerara, yesterday related to Kaieteur News that three bandits who were armed with handguns stormed into his business place some time around 10:00hrs.
Naraine explained that the bandits, who were posing as customers, told his workers to lie on the floor.
They complied and the bandits began emptying all the drawers and cleaning off the counters, which were filled with jewellery.
The three gunmen even took the jewellery which Naraine and his three employees were wearing.
Naraine said that the entire ordeal lasted for about ten minutes.
Darshanan Parshad who works at the shop said that the police must be commended since they responded quickly.
Neighbours at the scene yesterday remembered seeing a gold-coloured AT 192 car parked at the corner.
The police have since tied the same vehicle to the restaurant robbery on Friday night. Up to press time the police had made no arrests.
Investigations are still continuing.
