Home News Pregnant teen, partner attacked, robbed by cutlass-wielding bandits
A pregnant 18-year-old teacher and her 26-year-old partner were on Wednesday evening attacked and robbed by three cutlass-wielding bandits who reportedly kicked down their door to gain entry into their home.
The incident occurred at around 20:30h at St Ignatius Village, Central Rupununi, Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo).
Based on reports received, the pregnant woman was in bed with her partner when the three suspects – each armed with a cutlass – entered their home and started to beat and chop her partner, who eventually escaped.
The perpetrators then started to ransack the house. During the horrifying ordeal, the perpetrators destroyed a bicycle, hammock, and a black Honda XR motorcycle bearing registration number CG 4118.
After the suspects left the scene, the teacher discovered her cell phone and music box missing. Also missing was a quantity of silver and gold jewellery.
Following the robbery, a report was made to the Police and acting on information, a raid was conducted on three houses in Tabatinga, St Ignatius Village and Lethem where four males were arrested including the three suspects.
They are presently in custody at the Lethem Police Station. A Brazilian-made motorcycle was found during the Police operation and same was lodged at the police station pending investigations.
