Three men who were part of a four man gang that hijacked a taxi on Friday night are now cooling off in the lock-ups, thanks to public spirited residents and the quick response of the police.
The men were held in Eccles a few minutes after relieving Sheldon Anderson of his motor car.
A statement from the police said that at about 21:00 hours on Friday, four men hired Anderson’s taxi at the Stabroek Market to go to Eccles, East Bank Demerara.
At Eccles the driver was held at gunpoint and his motor vehicle taken away by the men who drove further into Eccles.
A brave Anderson traced the vehicle, which was subsequently found, but he was forced to retreat after rounds were discharged at him by the men.
However, the bandits abandoned the vehicle and fled the scene after neighbouring residents came out and challenged them.
The residents’ efforts were backed up by quick response by the police to the report and which resulted in three of the suspects being arrested.
They are in police custody assisting with the investigations and are certain to appear in court tomorrow.
