Bandits rob Rose Hall Superbet outlet

Two masked and armed men executed a daring robbery on a Superbet outlet at Transformer Street, Rose Hall Town, Corentyne, Berbice on Wednesday evening.
Police investigations revealed that on the day in question about 20:10h, a 32-year-old female cashier attached to the establishment was attending to a customer when two masked men dressed with dark clothing entered the shop.
At the time, one of the men were armed with a crowbar, while the other was armed with an unknown object. However, they ordered the male customer to lay face down on the ground inside the shop.
Fearful for his life, the customer complied and it was then the perpetrator who was armed with the crowbar ordered the cashier to open the inner door. Also fearful for her life, the cashier complied.
The man then instructed the woman to hand over all the cash. She, however, pointed them to a box where the cash was kept. As such, the bandit reportedly collected the cash which amounted to $35,500 after which he and his accomplice made good their escape on foot.
After the men left, the Police were contacted and an investigation was launched.
This incident came on the heels of a robbery at a Superbet location in Beterverwagting, East Coast Demerara (ECD), just a week ago.
It was reported that a 17-year-old male allegedly went to the location, where he snatched the cashier’s phone and $10,000 in cash and tried to escape.
During his bid to escape, the teenager was cornered by public-spirted citizens who tied him up and subsequently handed him over to the Police. (G9)
