Home News Princess Street man attacked, robbed of valuables
A Princess Street, Lodge, Georgetown man is now left counting his losses after he was attacked by two bandits, one of which was armed, and robbed of his valuables on Sunday evening.
The victim, 39-year-old Gregory Shawn was reportedly walking to his home at around 19:00h after purchasing a small amount of groceries from a nearby shop when he was pounced upon.
The man told Police that he saw his attackers pass him, both on bicycles headed in the opposite direction but did not notice when the duo began following him.
However, he explained that he felt an arm around his neck and someone demanding that he “not move or I’ll injure you!”
The frightened man explained that he dropped the groceries and began struggling with the bandit when he was confronted by the other perpetrator.
Shawn recounted that he ceased struggling when he felt a cold object to the side of his chest and realised that the perpetrator was armed.
The second suspect reportedly searched the victim’s pockets and collected his cellphone valued $75,000 and his wallet containing his identification card, bank cards and just over $25,000.
The duo, both unmasked, quickly made good their escape on their bicycles. The matter has since been reported to the police.
