Home News Gunmen rob minibus driver of “Pit Bull”
The Police have launched an investigation after two gunmen reportedly relieved a 25-year-old man of a “Pit Bull” minibus at Swan Village, Soesdyke-Linden Highway, on Sunday evening.
Preliminary investigations by Police revealed that on the day in question at about 21:00h, the minibus bearing registration number PWW 1914 was reportedly overheating and as such, the driver pulled over to the left side of the Highway in the vicinity of Swan Village so that it could cool off.
At the time, the area was dark. However, about five minutes later, the driver told Police that a dark-coloured car pulled up behind the bus and two males exited and ran toward the driver’s side door of the minibus.
One of them, he stated, pulled out a handgun from the waist of his pants and pointed it at him. The victim was then pulled out of his orange and black minibus during which he was searched and relieved of $20,000 cash that he was carrying at the time.
The gunmen then drove off with the minibus, leaving him on the roadway.
He nevertheless made his way to the Kuru Kururu Police Outpost where he lodged a report. The Police have since alerted their colleagues along the Highway and East Bank of Demerara (EBD) of the incident.
Up to press time, the minibus was not located. Investigations are underway.
