Police are investigating an alleged armed robbery committed on a 43-year-old Financial Director and his 30-year-old spouse which occurred about 02:30hrs this morning, at their Republic Park, East Bank Demerara address.
A police report noted that five men, two of whom were armed with handguns, attacked the family and robbed them of a quantity of jewellery, several electronic gadgets, documents and other valuables.
