Three pump attendants attached to the Shell Service Station at McDoom, East Bank Demerara, were on Friday evening robbed of an undisclosed amount of cash by a lone gunman.
The attack occurred around 10 pm, when the three female pump attendants were on duty.
Stabroek News was told that the gunman, who was dressed in camouflage clothing and whose face was partially concealed by a hat, entered the gas station and approached the women, who were standing on the eastern side of the compound.
He then held them at gunpoint, relieved them of the cash they had in their possession and then escaped on foot.
This newspaper was also told that the robbery was recorded by surveillance cameras and the footage is being reviewed by the police.
