He came all the way from Kuru Kururu, Soesdyke/Linden Highway to visit his kid’s mom at Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara. But the 20-year-old labourer never catered for being robbed of his expensive Nike Air-Max shoes.
That is exactly what happened Wednesday night to the victim, who was abducted, robbed and then pushed out of a car.
According to police, around 21:15hrs, the victim was proceeding south along the Mon Repos School Road, when he was pounced upon by the driver of a motor car, PRR 1787, who placed a knife to his neck.
The man was forced into the back seat of the car where two male suspects relieved him of his footwear, silver jewellery, mobile phone and other items.
Police said that the robbers then pushed the man out of the vehicle which sped away.
It was reported that while the bandits were making their escape, their vehicle came into contact with another vehicle causing minor damage. However, the robbers failed to stop.
The owner of the damaged vehicle summoned a Community Policing Group (CPG) patrol which responded promptly and intercepted the car and its driver in a nearby village, minus the two accomplices.
According to police, the driver was arrested and escorted to the Beterverwagting Police Station along with his vehicle by the CPG members.
The robbery victim who was there to make a report, positively identified the driver and the vehicle as being the one used in the crime.
Police said that a search of the vehicle unearthed a knife fitting the description of the one used to rob the victim.
The 21-year-old suspect, who resides at Tuschen, East Bank Essequibo and Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara, is said to be cooperating with investigators.
The police lauded the efforts of the CPG members.
“The Guyana Police Force wishes to recognise the swift and professional approach by the members of the Community Police Group, in apprehending and handing over the suspect and vehicle to the police.”
