Suspect caught after robbing vendors, Police hunt for ‘accomplice Awara’
Minutes after three vendors were reportedly accosted and relieved of cash and other items outside of the Stabroek Market by two males, Police ranks caught one of the suspects with an unlicensed .38 revolver with four matching rounds.
Police Headquarters revealed that the robbery occurred about 02:10hrs on Wednesday and at the time, Police ranks under the command of a Corporal, were patrolling the area and responded.
“Stringent efforts are being made to apprehend the other suspect who managed to elude the lawmen; he has been identified and goes by the alias ‘Awara’,” the Police statement noted.
Police Public Relations Officer Superintendent Jairam Ramlakhan said an increased and concentrated Police presence in and around the Stabroek Market block recently has so far resulted in a decrease in reported incidents of crime.
