Technician who stopped to urinate robbed of car, cash, electronics
Four armed gunmen on Wednesday robbed a Technician of his vehicle, a quantity of cash and electronics as he stopped in Tucville Terrace, East La Penitence, Georgetown, to urinate.
According to a police report, the robbery occurred around 10:50hrs.
Police said the Technician was driving through Tucville Terrace when he stopped to ‘ease his bladder’, leaving the driver side door opened and the ignition on.
The gunmen reportedly rode up on two motorcycles from an eastern direction; police said one of the pillion riders dismounted, pulled a handgun from his waist and held the Technician at gunpoint.
After demanding cash and valuables, the armed pillion rider went into the Technician’s white and black Toyota Fielder Wagon #PWW 9299, which contained one iPhone X valued $100,000, one Lenovo laptop valued $80,000 and $17,000 cash and drove away.
The other suspects followed suit and escaped in an eastern direction on Tucville Terrace.
Police said checks were made to locate the perpetrators, but this was unsuccessful.
Investigations are ongoing.
