Bandits on Tuesday night stormed the home of a 37-year-old woman who lives with her 18-year-old daughter and 19-year-old son at lot 127 Bushlot Farm, Corentyne, Berbice.
According to Sasewattie Singh called “Pamo”, she was resting in her bedroom while her son was in a hammock in the bottom flat off their small two-storeyed wooden home when two masked men, dressed in dark clothing and armed with guns, jumped the wooden picket fence and confronted the teenage boy just around 22:35 hrs.
“Me hear me son and people talking, so me jump out me bed and was heading downstairs, but de man dem done come upstairs and one point de gun on me,” she recounted. Singh said that they tied up her son and while pointing the gun at her, they demanded cash and jewellery.
“They pointed the gun at me and dem had me son and daughter lie down flat on the floor and one get me searching, he seh he want all the jewel and all the money, so he get me searching. Me bin get a cup with jewel inside, he pull off a pillow case and he seh lemme throw everything in the pillow case, and after then he bring me downstairs. Me had little bit money in three different purses, so he make me open dem purse and give he,” the woman disclosed.
Singh also remembered one of the men telling her that they were sent by “the million-dollar man to kill me” but this she said seemed strange and opined that if they were indeed sent to kill her, they would have done just that and robbed the home as well.
The woman who admitted that she is still scared, told this publication that in the 20 years she lived in Bushlot Farm, she never expected to become the victim of a robbery. She however praised the police for their swift response when they were contacted.
Close to $500,000 in gold jewellery was carted off along with five cellular phones and $45,000 cash. No one has since been arrested as police continue to investigate.
Over the weekend bandits pounced on three families at Maida Farm, Corentyne, Fyrish Village and Bushlot, Corentyne. Prior to that, two homes in Black Bush Polder were also robbed of cash and valuables and no one has been arrested or charged.
