The police have arrested a 21-year- old male suspect of Herstelling, East Bank Demerara following a robbery under arms committed in the community earlier this morning.
According to reports, at about 03:00hrs this morning, an overseas- based Guyanese was robbed of a quantity of gold jewellery at her Herstelling, EBD residence, shortly after a family reunion.

The shot victim was rushed to the Diamond Diagnostic Hospital and was transferred to the GPHC where he underwent surgery. His condition is regarded as stable but serious.
