Police in C Division (East Coast Demerara) are on the hunt for two men who stormed a Chinese Supermarket at Non Pareil, East Coast Demerara.
Reports are the men – one of whom was wearing a black tope, and the other a grey sunhat – entered the supermarket on Thursday evening, approached the owner’s wife, and relieved her of a mobile phone, after which they turned their attention to the owner, and relieved him of a large sum of cash and phone cards.
The men then made good their escape, but not before snatching a gold chain from an employee’s neck. The Police were summoned after the incident and the Force has launched an investigation.
CCTV footage is being reviewed by Police with the intention of determining the identity of the two armed men. Investigations are continuing.
