The Police are investigating an armed robbery committed on a 36-year-old caterer of Bent Street, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown, which occurred about 7.10 on Monday evening at North Road between Alexander and Bourda streets, by three men, one of whom was armed with a handgun.
The police say that enquiries disclosed that the victim and his three male friends were heading to Bourda Market. Upon arrival, the victim parked his silver grey Toyota Premio motorcar PTT 8405 on North Road.
The victim and his friends then exited the vehicle during which they were confronted by the three men. It was then that one of the men who was armed with a handgun demanded the key for the motorcar which the driver refused to give.
The driver suffered several lashes to his head with the gun and subsequently fell to the ground. The other three friends ran away.
The armed bandit picked up the car key, entered the vehicle with his other accomplices and escaped with the victim’s cellular phones heading west of North Road.
No arrest has been made.
