A taxi driver is now left contemplating his next move after he was robbed at gunpoint on Monday evening at the Eccles Industrial Site, East Bank Demerara of a Toyota Allion motor car by a lone bandit posing as a customer.
Stabroek News understands that Muhamed Amir Edun, 27, a resident of Lot 16 James and Hogg Streets, Albouystown, Georgetown was sitting at the R&J taxi service located at BB Eccles, EBD around 21.55hrs on Monday, when the suspect approached him.
The man then requested to be taken to Industrial Site, Eccles in the vicinity of the dump site after which he entered the silver grey Toyota Allion motor car, HC 6275 and sat in the back seat.
During the journey, the suspect allegedly placed an object suspected to be a gun to Edun’s face and ordered him not to say anything.
Shortly after, a Raum motor car drove up alongside the car and a male exited.
The male ordered Edun to exit the car and he ran into some nearby bushes. The suspects then made good their escape in an unknown direction.
Edun sister, Bibi Nazeera Edun yesterday related to Stabroek News that her brother has been renting the now stolen car for about three years.
Nazeera said following the incident, her still terrified brother ventured out of the Eccles where he met a friend.
She said he and the friend tried to trace the vehicle by following it but subsequently lost track of it somewhere in Georgetown.
Stabroek News understands that an investigation has been launched and checks was made in the area for the car but it was not located.
