Police are searching for two suspects in the attack carried out on the Barama Company Limited compound at Land of Canaan, East Bank Demerara, where the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and other workers were robbed last Saturday.
Acting Commander of ‘A’ Division Wendell Blanhum told Stabroek News that investigators are searching for two individuals who are known to the police. He explained that checks were made at the suspects’ addresses but police were not successful in apprehending them.
The attack took place around 11.45 last Saturday night, after five bandits subdued and restrained the guard on duty, who was also robbed of a company shotgun and ammunition.
The bandits then proceeded to the living quarters, kicked down the door and gained entry into the building, where they held the company’s CEO, a supervisor and a female worker at gunpoint.
The bandits held the CEO at gunpoint and instructed him to take them to their valuables, while they duct-taped the supervisor and the female worker.
The men robbed the victims of a quantity of jewellery, cellular phones and an undisclosed amount of cash before escaping.
