Linden teen robbed at gunpoint

An 18-year-old was on Monday relieved of his mobile phone by two armed men at Fox Hill Foot, Half Mile Wismar, Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice). A friend of the victim was also injured during the ordeal.
According to information received, the teenager of Valley Wismar, Linden, was sitting at the corner of Fox Hill Foot with his friend when the two gunmen approached them and instructed them to remain silent.
The young man was reportedly relieved of his ZTE Android cellular phone. Upon seeing this, the young man’s friend threw his phone into a neighbouring yard.
Consequently, one of the armed men dealt him several lashes with the gun to his back, resulting in him sustaining injuries. The bandits made good their escape on foot, and the matter was subsequently reported to the Police.
