Three males, one armed with a handgun who about 04:30hrs this morning at lot 18 Grove Public Road, East Bank Demerara, attacked, robbed and bound a Security Guard before breaking into “The Number One Supermarket” located at the aforementioned address, have been apprehended and are cooperating with investigators.
As the bandits were all inside of the Supermarket, the 53-year-old Security Guard who was relieved of his cellular phone and a bag, managed to free himself and immediately alerted neighbours who summoned the police.
In quick time, the lawmen responded and captured the perpetrators inside the business premises.
A .38 Revolver with six live matching rounds as well as a quantity of phonecards and a sum of cash were found in their possession.
The suspects, two of whom hail from Herstelling Sea Dam whilst the other from Covent Garden, East Bank Demerara, respectively are being processed for court.
