A 51year-old Chinese businessman was robbed of $45,000 in cash by four (4) men , one of whom had been armed with a black handgun, after they stormed into his restaurant while he was in the process of securing the premises.
The businessman, Bing Tao Su, resides at Thomas Street, South Cummingsburg, Georgetown with his wife and teenage daughter in the upper flat of the building and the restaurant in the lower flat.
