Gunshots rang out as two bandits were forced to abandon their attempt to rob a Blygezight, Campbellville businessman last Friday.
The men fired shots into the air to ward off neighbours who were coming to the businessman’s rescue.
Reports reaching this newspaper stated that 50-year- old Mohabir Sugrim was in his dining area, around 20:30 hours while his wife was in the kitchen, when he heard the door bell rang about four times.
Upon answering the doorbell, he saw a man, who said he wanted to change US$20.
Sugrim told police that he collected the cash and went into the house, with the grill door still locked and came back with the equivalent $4,000, which he handed over to the suspect.
But instead of taking the money and go, the suspect drew a gun from his left side pants waist and ordered the victim to open the grill door.
According to Sugrim, he complied and was dealt several lashes to his head, by the bandit who demanded cash and jewellery. Sugrim’s wife, who had heard some commotion emerged from the kitchen and was ordered by the suspect to return to the kitchen.
By this time several persons in the neighbourhood came out, forcing the bandits to flee empty handed.
The businessman who sustained injuries to his head was treated at a city hospital.
