In a brazen daylight robbery yesterday, two young bandits held the 16-year-old son of Magistrate Clive Nurse at gunpoint, after invading the magistrate’s Lot 47 Freeman Street, East La Penitence home.
The robbers, who bound the teen with duct-tape, escaped with $380,000, two mobile phones and an Xbox, after thoroughly ransacking the two-storey property.
Sources said that the lad was the only person at home when the robbers struck. It is believed that the men gained entry to the property via a front door that was left open in the bottom flat. A back gate was also found ajar.
According to reports, the teen was in his parents’ bedroom at around 11:00 hrs yesterday when the robbers entered and held him at gunpoint. They then bound his hands and feet with duct-tape and proceeded to ransack the house. They eventually fled the scene after locating some $380,000 in cash and other valuables.
A source said that after the robbers had left, the still-bound teen managed to contact a friend of his mother’s after pressing the redial button on a cordless phone.
The woman reportedly hurried home and freed her son.
Kaieteur News understands that police are still questioning residents to ascertain who might have witnessed the bandits’ arrival and departure.
Magistrate Clive Nurse is seconded to the East Demerara Magistrate District and presides at the Mahaica and Mahaicony courts.
Magistrate Nurse told Kaieteur News that he has lived in the East La Penitence area for most of his life. He said that his home had been previously burglarized and his son was once robbed in the area.
