A 42-year-old security guard attached to Sheriff Security Service was robbed by four men, one of whom was armed with a gun, at Craig Old Road, East Bank Demerara (EBD) on Wednesday.
The Guyana Police Force (GPF) reported that the armed robbery occurred at about 23:00h.
The victim was walking along Busbee Dam in Craig when the four perpetrators in a Silver Grey motor vehicle drove alongside him and stopped.
The men came out of the vehicle, and one placed a handgun to his head and relieved him of a briefcase valued at $13,000, a 20-point Diamond valued at $200,000, a gold chain valued at $156,000, three Samsung cellphones valued at $43,000, $32,000 and $26,000, and his passport and birth certificate.
The suspects made good their escape in the motor vehicle. However, acting on information received, ranks from the Golden Grove Police Station intercepted a Silver Grey motor vehicle bearing registration number PAB 9592.
Four men exited the vehicle, and the suspect with the gun discharged several rounds towards the Police and made good his escape.
The three others: Andy Budhan, 24, Daniel Singh, 29, and Michael Patraj, 23, all of whom are from Grove, were arrested and placed into custody.
The motor vehicle they travelled in was lodged at Grove Police Station. Investigations are ongoing.
