Following intense investigation, the police have arrested one person in connection with the armed robbery at a Chinese
restaurant at Rosignol Village, West Bank Berbice, last Thursday evening. The man was at the restaurant at the time of the robbery.
During the ordeal, six armed masked bandits attacked and robbed the Chung Lee Chinese restaurant situated at Lot 89 Rosignol, West Bank Berbice, on Thursday. The bandits who were armed with two hand guns, cutlasses and knives were all decked out in black and were wearing gloves and heavy boots.
According to the proprietor Lianggen Su, 49, a father of one, he has been in Guyana for over 23 years and operates two restaurants. Both restaurants carry the same name and are situated in Rosignol. He has been at the present location for 13 years.
The man lives at the location with his wife Su Yang Kuan Jing, 43, and his son Zhinengsu Su called, Su G’, 18.
He was brutalized during the ordeal and as a result suffered wounds to the head, face and other parts of his body. The man had told the media that around 22:15 hrs, he was in his restaurant watching television while his wife and the waitress was in the inner part of the restaurant attending to other business. The waitress’ husband was also in the restaurant at the time.
He suddenly saw the men enter and before he could realize what was happening he was hit on his head with a gun. The men had quickly closed the door and proceeded to beat him in his head and ordered him to lie on the floor. They quickly accosted his wife, the waitress and her husband and dealt them a similar licking. They were kicked stomped and told not to look. His hands were also tied behind his back.
The man said that the bandits put them to lie on the floor with their faces down and placed a chair above them whilst two of them stood on the chair.
A gun and a knife were placed to his wife’s head before she was ordered upstairs. She was made to crawl up the stairs during which time she suffered a sprained ankle. They then proceeded to ransack the upper flat and they continued their demand for more gold and jewelry.
The woman was then made to crawl down the step and rejoin the others. An axe which was found was also used to terrorize the victims.
The man and his family said that they are very traumatized and are contemplating their next move. Su who underwent surgery a few months ago stated that he has been living in the area for the past 23 years and has never suffered a robbery before.
The bloodied man however, remembered that his brother-in-law, Yang Qiyuan, who was 27 at the time and use to live with him, was brutally murdered at Cotton Tree. That incident took place in October 2001. No one was ever caught or held for that incident even though the main suspect was known.
His brother-in-law who usually wore a fat gold chain had a girl friend in Cotton Tree and would visit her often. A dispute arose between him and another man over the girl and he was attacked and killed. His chain was missing.
