A bandit with a gun and two others with cutlasses escaped with cash and jewellery after terrorizing a Corentyne family at around 05.00hrs yesterday.
Ceenarine Cyril Satrohan, 36, of Lot 232 Reef Section, Rose Hall, Corentyne, was at home with his wife and children when the bandits struck.
Satrohan, a fish vendor at the Rose Hall Market, was preparing to make his daily sales when the bandits struck.
“Me get up to tek out de fish from de freezer and go me go round de side of de house to collect de plastic, de one with de gun point it in me face and seh ‘don’t holler’ and me start holler hard and he lash me wid de gun.”
The traumatized man stated that he was dragged back into his home by the bandit who then demanded cash and jewellery.
“When de one wid de gun seh ‘gimme money and gold’, de other two run upstairs to meh wife and when she start holler meh tek out de money and give them. Den he drag meh and carry meh to de bathroom and one of them from upstairs come down fah watch me while he go up to meh wife.”
Satrohan added that the men then began beating him with the cutlass saying that they would “chop off his hand and foot”.
He was then taken upstairs to find his wife being stripped of her gold jewellery.
According to Satrohan’s wife, 26-year-old Sarita, she tried to shut the door before the bandits could gain entry but the men overpowered her.
“One of dem tell meh don’t holler, all we want is money and gold. And meh start pull off all me ring pon meh finger and meh band and suh and give dem”.
She told Kaieteur News that one of the bandits grabbed her by her neck and placed a cutlass to her privates.
“He scramble meh neck then he put de cutlass pon meh private and he carry meh husband back downstairs and stay wid he”.
The woman told this publication that she retreated to the lower flat of the home with her husband while the bandits made good their escape.
The bandits carted off $60,000 in cash and over $100,000 in gold jewellery.
Meanwhile, police have arrested a man who had allegedly threatened to rob Satrohan a few days prior to the incident. According to information recieved, the man was hired by the fish vendor to assist him in transporting his goods from No. 64 village.
Satrohan said that the deal turned sour after the agreed payment was changed.
He said “de man is meh fren and meh tell he seh me gon pay he $4000 if he carry meh to the fishery to by fish and he seh yes. So now when we done buy de fish and coming back, me tek out meh money fah pay and meh had alot of money on meh, suh me give he de four thousand and he seh me gotta give he more money, but dah wasn’t de agreement.”
He added that the man then threatened to hire people to rob and kill him.
“He keep saying that he would set people fah rob me and kill meh and dump me body far suh meh seh man buddy, me and you is fren, how you could tell me that? And now look meh get rob”.
