As the investigation intensifies into the brazen early morning attack on Number 79 Village Cambio Dealer Devendra Churaman by a 15-man gang, an identification parade conducted yesterday at the Albion Police Station has proven to be a success.
The Cambio dealer positively identified one of the suspects from a line-up of the eleven that were in custody. Commander of ‘B’ Division Senior Superintendent Errol Watts confirmed with this publication that one person was identified. Watts disclosed that the individual is a resident of Sand Hills, Berbice River.
He also revealed that during Churaman’s statement to the police early on in the investigation, he indicated that during the confrontation with the five men in his bedroom, the mask of one of the bandits fell off, it was then that he saw the perpetrator’s face. Watts however, declined to provide any other information, since the investigation is still at a “tender stage”.
The bandits who were armed with AK-47 rifles, shotguns, cutlasses and sledge hammers launched their attack at just about 01:45hrs on Monday. Five of the men who were all armed and masked, smashed through the front window of Churaman’s home and hammered through a steel door to his bedroom to gain entry. The businessman was held at gunpoint and was made to lie face down on the floor while they demanded cash and jewellery. There were reports that while the five men carried out their rampage in the Cambio Dealer’s home, ten others stood guard in the street while firing shots and lighting firecrackers to keep the neighbours distracted and at bay. Shots were also fired in Churaman’s home.
The bandits reportedly escaped with some $20million in local currency and $1million in jewellery.
