Home News 15-year-old nabbed after attacking, robbing couple in Albouystown
A 30-year-old female security guard and her boyfriend were on Wednesday evening attacked and robbed by two armed bandits at James Street, Albouystown, Georgetown.
Police said the couple were walking along James Street, about 22:15h when the two perpetrators rode up on bicycles and confronted them.
One reportedly pulled out a firearm from his right front pants pocket, pointed it at the guard and demanded that she hand over her valuables, so she complied. A gold chain valued $35,000 and a cellphone worth $17,000 were handed over.
Meanwhile, the victim’s boyfriend and the other bandit were engaged in a scuffle and upon realising what was happening, the armed robber discharged several rounds in the man’s direction and made good his escape, along with his accomplice. No one was injured.
Police were alerted, and checks were made at a residence on the said street where a 15-year-old suspect was arrested. Police reported that the suspect’s mother was instructed to have her son report to the Ruimveldt Police Station pending investigations.
Checks were made for the second perpetrator, but he was not found.
