A 50-year-old hire car driver is now nursing a wound to his left hand which he allegedly sustained while fighting with a cutlass-wielding man inside his home after the suspect broke in with another cutlass-wielding suspect and a gunman to execute a robbery last night (Thursday).
The incident occurred around 21:00h at Bush Lot, Corentyne, and involved the three (3) suspects who each wore a mask and donned dark coloured clothing.
According to a police statement, on the date and time mentioned above the taxi driver was awakened by a loud noise coming from his living room and upon checking he was confronted by two masked bandits both armed with cutlasses.
“One of the bandits placed a cutlass to his neck and demanded that he handed over all his valuables. The victim then held onto the cutlass and a scuffle ensued. The two bandits subsequently abandoned their mission and made good their escape along with their accomplice with the hand gun who was standing in the yard.”
The 50-year-old taxi driver received a wound to his left hand and was escorted to the Port Mourant Public Hospital where he seen and examined by a doctor on duty and sent away.
Investigations are ongoing.
