Over two dozen workers of a mining camp at Baboon Backdam, Cuyuni River, were robbed on Wednesday.
The Guyana Police Force said the attack was carried out between 7 pm and 12 am by four masked men armed with a rifle and shotguns. They were reportedly outfitted in dark-coloured clothing and spoke a foreign language, the police said.
A quantity of raw gold and other valuables, including a licensed shotgun, were carted off. None of the workers, who are said to be employed by a camp owned by Mohammed’s Enterprise, was injured. The crime scene has since been visited by a team comprising ranks of the Joint Services.
No arrest was made up to yesterday.
