Female clerk beaten, robbed of $2M
A 39-year-old female clerk was beaten and robbed of $2 million on Friday afternoon at Caneview Avenue in South Ruimveldt, Georgetown.
According to a police report, at around 14:38hrs on Friday, the woman collected the cash from the head office of her unidentified place of employment so that she could pay a group of workers who were at South Ruimveldt.
It was reported that when she arrived at the location, she parked her car and was waiting to pay the workers, as she usually does.
While in the car, however, the woman noticed that six unidentifiable men on XR motorcycles approached her. Two of them, who were pillion riders, dismounted and approached her with firearms drawn.
They demanded she hand over the money; the woman, however, refused.
Thereafter, the men forced open the door on the driver’s side the woman was in, pulled her out and hit her to the stomach and face.
One of men then picked up the cash, which was secured in an envelope while another accomplice another discharged three rounds from his firearm – one in the air and two in the direction of the car – after which they all escaped.
The suspects remain at large as police continue their investigations.
