Consultant Alex Graham, family robbed; calls to 911 went unanswered
Advertising and communications consultant Alex Graham and his family have been left traumatized after bandits entered their South Ruimveldt, Georgetown home and carted off several electronic items, jewellery and an undisclosed sum of cash while they were asleep.
Graham, the Chief Executive Officer of Tagman Media, told the News Room that his wife was awakened by movement in her room sometime during the morning hours of Friday. She reportedly noticed a male person in her room and he instructed her to “remain quiet” while he continued rummaging through items in the room.
The suspect escaped with jewellery, the woman’s bank card, cellphones, watches, laptops, flash drives and an undisclosed sum of cash.
“They removed my son’s cellphone from under his pillow,” Graham related. He further explained that the suspect(s) managed to remove his cellphone from his bed without waking him.
He explained that it was difficult to state the time the incident occurred since all cellphones and watches were stolen.
However, after the incident, he tried several times to contact the police through the 911 hotline but the number kept ringing out. After some time, he said he managed to locate an old laptop and made a Facebook post about the robbery which led persons to contact the police who then called him.
He disclosed that the suspect(s) entered the home through a window which is usually left unsecured because it is difficult to access it.
He told the News Room that construction works are ongoing at his home and workers left a 30-feet ladder in the yard and this was used to gain access to the window.
