Police are investigating the armed robbery committed at the WD Malls at Charity, Essequibo Coast (Region Two) by two males just after midnight on Tuesday.
Police Headquarters in a statement noted that the 40-year-old desk clerk secured the mall at around 17:30hrs, however, hours later, he was on the second flat when he heard someone calling.
Upon checking, he saw the two males, who requested rooms at the facility, after which he unlocked the door to let them in.
The two males then whipped out black handguns and pointed them at the victim while demanding money. They took out $5,000 and a bunch of keys from the pocket of the victim and attempted to bind his hands but failed.
One of the males then proceeded to a cellphone stall on the first floor, broke a glass door and stole a number of cellphones valued at $3M and a number of electronic tablets valued at $300,000 before escaping. The entire ordeal was captured on CCTV cameras and investigations are underway.
