Four armed bandits attacked two security guards attached to RK Security Service, shooting one of them and escaping with an undisclosed sum of cash in what is being described as a brazen daylight robbery.
The incident which occurred shortly after noon has left Garvin Trotman nursing four gunshot wounds about his body.
The wounded guard and another colleague had just picked up the cash from the Balwant Singh’s Hospital on East Street, Georgetown.
Trotman, who is believed to be in his mid twenties, was shot once to the right shoulder and three times to the torso.
The Enmore, East Coast Demerara (ECD) resident, is a patient at the Balwant Singh’s Hospital.
According to reports, the two guards, Trotman and Andrew Glenn, had moments before uplifted an undisclosed sum of cash from the hospital and were heading to the bank to deposit the money when the bandits pounced on them.
Kaieteur News was told that as the men drove off from the hospital on East Street heading north toward Middle Street, the four armed bandits accosted them. The armed men were using two Honda CG motorcycles.
One of the bandits, who was described as tall and red skinned, is said to have approached the driver side of the RK Vehicle, as it approached Middle Street, and discharged several rounds, shattering the driver’s window.
“The car (RK security vehicle) drive a couple yards over Middle Street onto the East Street entrance and stop,” said the eyewitness.
Kaieteur News was further told that after the shots were fired, two of the bandits went around the car to the passenger side and collected a black bag, believed to have contained the cash.
The men reportedly made good their escape on the CG Motorcycles along Middle Street towards Thomas Street.
This publication was told that after the men made good their escape, the injured Trotman, made his way to the Balwant Singh Hospital where he reported what had transpired and was immediately admitted for treatment.
At press time, the injured man was said to be in a stable condition.
The other security guard was taken into police custody as investigations continue.
“This thing was just like a movie, if you see how dese men operate,” an eyewitness related.
According to the eyewitness, when the bandits pulled up, “There was no talking, is just shots start firing. Like dese men know wha fuh do and who had de money.”
The eyewitness said that no one saw anything suspicious before the robbery such as men carrying out surveillance in the area, so it was a big shock when the bandits just appeared as soon as the RK Security vehicle pulled off.
