Guyana: Man robbed of motorcycle, cell phone

Just several days ago, two pastors were robbed by motorcycle bandits on Sheriff Street in Georgetown, near Nirva supermarket.

Another robbery has occurred on the same street, but this time the crime was committed by a bandit, on foot, armed with a pair of scissors.

According to a police press release, a 40-year-old man, who was not named, stopped at a fast food outlet on Friday, May 21 when the scissors-wielding male suspect approached him and demanded that he hand over his valuables.

The man complied and gave the bandit his blue Lifan motorcycle valued at GYD$180,000 and a cell phone valued at $10,000.

Police said the suspect rode away in a southerly direction on Sheriff Street.

This incident comes about three days after a 33-year-old male pastor and his 36-year-old counterpart were the victims of an armed robbery that occurred near Nirva supermarket on Sheriff Street in Georgetown, around 2:45 p.m. on Wednesday, May 19, 2021, police said in a news release.

According to the police, the pastors were heading to the said supermarket when the bandits pulled up to them on a black motorcycle.

Police said the pillion rider got off the bike and pointed a gun at the duo, demanding that they hand over their belongings, however, the children of God refused.

This prompted the gunman to burst a shot in their direction, which luckily did not hit them.

It was at that time the pastors allowed the bandit to take their belongings which consisted of a brown Timberland wallet, national ID cards, driver’s license, NIS cards, Republic Bank card, Republic VTM card, and $2,000 in cash, along with a gold iPhone XS Max valued at $250,000, a black wallet valued at $2,000, a T&T ID card, T&T license, $3,000 in cash and a red Fransico handbag valued at $10,000.

Police are investigating.
