The captured suspect implicated in the daring daylight robbery of a Route 32 minibus and the murder of its driver is scheduled to make a court appearance today.
Guyana Times understands that the male suspect will be arraigned before a city magistrate for the murder of 35-year-old bus driver Tedroy James aka “Six-Head” of Suddie, Essequibo Coast. James was shot in the back by one of three armed bandits around 11:30h last Tuesday. The soon-to-be arraigned suspect was nabbed on the very day of the robbery- murder.
This publication had reported that the attack was well planned based on the account of several eyewitnesses, who had disclosed that a passenger of the BTT 976 bus had joined the vehicle on the West Coast of Demerara. He was said to be in constant communication on his mobile phone, sending several messages. The male passenger had reportedly requested that the bus stop along the McDoom, East Bank Demerara Public Road, but moments before he disembarked, the man grabbed a bag belonging to another male passenger before turning on him with a gun.
An eyewitness said that moments after the bag was snatched, two other male accomplices swooped down on the vehicle, joined in and robbed the other passengers.
The now dead minibus driver had attempted to drive away with his passengers, but one of the three gunmen shot him once to the back before he could flee. The trio then fled the scene through a street in the McDoom community where one was later detained. The Route 32 bus driver, a father of two, was pronounced dead on arrival at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
