Lone gunman stages daring LBI robbery

…escapes with $8M, victim’s car

A lone robber on Thursday afternoon escaped with over $8 million and a motor car after he managed to rob a 26-year-old resident of La Bonne Intention Housing Scheme, East Coast Demerara (ECD).

Police reports state that Kevin Gildharie parked his car in the LBI area at about 16:30h and was allegedly approached by a man who was wearing a face mask. The suspect held onto him and before he could free himself, the man pulled out a handgun and inflicted injuries to the victim’s neck. The robber then drove off in the silver-grey motor car.
Guyana Times understands that the vehicle contained $8,030,000 and one Samsung cellular phone valued at $40,000.
A report was made and Police are continuing their investigation. (G12)
