Chinese supermarket owner robbed

A 39-year-old Chinese national and businessman was robbed in the wee hours of Saturday morning of $500,000 outside his business place.
Reports are that Awei Huo Die was about to enter his yard at the AWEI Supermarket at Vryheid Lust Public Road, East Coast Demerara (ECD), at about 02:00h when he noticed two men passing on the road.
The two men then pounced on the man and relieved him of $500,000 and a cellphone valued at $80,000 before making good their escape.
The Police were summoned after the incident, and checks were made for the suspects in the area but no one was arrested.
Some months ago, a Chinese national was shot when gunmen stormed the Egou Supermarket located at Melanie Public Road, East Coast Demerara (ECD).
Four bandits, three of whom were armed with guns, invaded the supermarket.
Police said the suspects managed to escape with $1.8 million, a Samsung S8 cellphone, a quantity of phone cards, and a Digital Video Recorder (DVR).
The proprietor, along with five employees who are Chinese nationals, were in the supermarket when one of the suspects entered and purchased an item. He then exited but returned with his accomplices.
