Bandits attack Wash Bay owner
Bandits on Wednesday made off with items valuing $320,000 from the 51-year-old owner of a Wash Bay at lot 38 Public Road, Bagotstown, East Bank Demerara (EBD) in a daring daylight robbery.
Reports are that the woman, Debbie Atwell, owner of Presidential Touch Wash Bay, was sitting on a chair on the eastern side at about 11:15hrs, using her phone when she felt someone pulled her gold necklace that she was wearing at the time.
The woman told police that she looked up and saw a man with a gun standing in front of her while three others, armed with knives, surrounded her.
They relieved her of the gold necklace valued at $150,000; two gold rings valued $70,000 and one gold band valued $ 100,000.
The men escaped on foot and investigations are ongoing.
