Another Berbice businessperson has been robbed. This time, the owner of Limacine Service Provider Rawle De Matos was pounced upon while entering his yard at Port Mourant on Monday evening.
Reports are that the businessman was attacked by two men, one of whom was armed with a gun and the other with a cutlass at about 21:00h.
Speaking with Guyana Times, De Matos said that the men were in his yard waiting for him as he entered. He related that the men demanded cash and jewellery and ordered that he take them into the house.
De Matos recalled that the men attempted to duct tape him and he resisted, during which a scuffle ensued. He was hit in the head with a gun and also chopped in the head.
The man however managed to free himself from his attackers and ran out of the yard, calling for help. During the attack, De Matos was relieved of $6000, and a cellular phone.
He was taken to the Port Mourant Hospital and then transferred to the New Amsterdam Hospital, where he remains a patient. No one has been arrested. Police are investigating.
