Three males, one armed with a handgun, attacked, robbed and bound a Security Guard before breaking into “The Number One Supermarket” located at 18 Grove Public Road, East Bank Demerara around 04:30hrs.
According to police reports, as the bandits were all inside of the Supermarket, the 53-year-old Security Guard who was relieved of his cellular phone and a bag, managed to free himself and immediately alerted neighbours who summoned the police. The lawmen responded and captured the perpetrators inside the business premises.
A .38 Revolver with six live matching rounds as well as a quantity of phonecards and a sum of cash were found in their possession.
The suspects, two of whom hail from Herstelling Sea Dam whilst the other from Covent Garden, East Bank Demerara, respectively are being processed for court.
Investigations are continuing.
