Gunmen rob Wedding house guests
By Leroy Smith
Bandits last evening pounced on a home of Elton Nedd in ‘B’ Field Sophia shortly after he tied the knot. During the ordeal, guests were beaten and robbed of cash and other articles.
Speaking with News Room this morning at his Lot 1167 ‘B’ Field Sophia home, Nedd, a mechanic explained that he was at the Independence Arch at Brickdam, Georgetown, taking photographs with his bride when the bandits invaded his home.
He noted that he received a call about the incident shortly after 19:00hrs.
Nedd said that after receiving the call, he telephoned the police emergency number and also informed a police patrol that was passing of the development and they, in turn, told him that they were heading to the location and will check on the report.
According to a statement from the police this morning, the four men robbed the persons escaped on foot.
The police said, acting on information, they visited another house at ‘B’ Field, Sophia where the men allegedly escaped to, however, the men escaped in some bushes.
A search was carried out in the house and the articles were stolen from the persons at the party along with one (1) .32 Taurus pistol and one (1) matching round were found.
A woman is in police custody assisting with the investigations.
Nedd is calling on the relevant authorities to ensure that there is an increased in the police presence around the area as he is of the view that the characters who hang out there do so to observe the movements of persons traversing the area.
He also claimed that persons were unable to retrieve their stolen items when they visited the police station and therefore he is now mobilising the persons who were robbed so that they can formally report the matter to the police Office of professional Responsibility.
