North Ruimveldt bandit still hospitalised
by Leroy Smith
Investigators have been able to identify one of the bandits from Wednesday’s daring robbery attempt in North Ruimveldt.
According to police sources, the bandit with the least injuries has been identified as Patrick Goodluck from the community of Sophia.
It was reported that Goodluck, who was discharged from the Georgetown Public Hospital late last evening is now in the custody of the police as the investigation into the robbery attempt continues.
Meanwhile, the other bandit whose name was not disclosed remains in the hospital under police guard.
Detectives who visited the man to check on his condition told the News Room that based on information from the doctors, he is responding favourably to treatment and is no longer listed as critical.
It was on Wednesday that the two attempted to enter the home of a North Ruimveldt family in an attempt to steal a CG motorcycle when the occupants of the home retaliated with help from the community.
The bandits received a sound thrashing from the residents before being handed over to the police.
It is unclear if the police will be going after those who would have inflicted the blows on the bandits, as it is considered vigilante justice which according to the law, is an illegal act.
