…robs her of 0,000
A 43-year-old woman is now in a traumatised state after two gunmen followed her from Diamond, East Bank Demerara to her home, also in Diamond, where they relieved her of some $500,000 in cash.
Reports are that the incident occurred at about 12:00h, as the woman arrived home from the bank after withdrawing the money, and she was in the process of entering her yard.
Two men, bearing guns reportedly exited a white Toyota Premio motorcar, and they pounced on the woman snatching the bag of money from her hands.
The bag reportedly contained other personal documents as well. Police have since confirmed that one of the bandits attempted to snatch the woman’s iPhone from her hands, but after she put up a struggle, his accomplice was heard commanding him to “leave it alone!”
As such, they fled scene in a waiting motor car. An investigation has been launched and Police are reviewing nearby CCTV footage in an effort to identify the bandits.
