Gun-toting bandit robs Rubis gas station employee near Demerara Bank

A Rubis gas station employee was robbed on his way to make a deposit at Demarara Bank this morning.

Mitra Narine was on a routine trip to Demarara Bank on Camp Street and South Road, to make a deposit on his employer’s behalf. At approximately 9.30 am he parked on South Road and was approached by a man who placed a shotgun to his head through the window of the silver Nissan minibus he was driving. The man then snatched the deposit bag with the money.

The assailant who was described to be wearing a black t-shirt and dark shades then ran east along South Road where his accomplice was waiting on a black CG motorcycle. The accomplice was described as a man wearing a white t-shirt. The two escaped with an undisclosed sum of money.
