Teen robbed by cutlass wielding bandits in Tuschen
An 18-year-old male vendor of Tuschen New Housing Scheme, East Bank Essequibo was on Friday night robbed by two “known males”, police have reported.
Among the items taken is a five-pennyweight gold chain valued at $65,000; two Samsung Galaxy cellular phones (A10 and A20) valued at $90,000 and $10,000 in cash.
Police said the victim was walking south along the Tuschen access road heading home at around 21:30hrs when the two suspects rode up alongside him on a bicycle.
They then dismounted and one of the suspects placed a cutlass to his neck and told him to hand over everything. The other suspect then relieved him of the items and they both escaped on the said bicycle.
