A 26-year-old taxi driver of Tuschen, East Bank Essequibo is in a stable condition at the Georgetown Public Hospital after he was stabbed multiple times and robbed by two men and a woman with a baby on Monday night.
Injured is Insaf Zakir known as ‘Gaddafi’; police said the incident occurred at about 21:10hrs at Crane Housing Scheme, West Coast Demerara.
The victim told police that he was at the Tuschen car park when he was approached by an identifiable female holding a baby and two identifiable males; they requested to be taken to Best Village, West Coast Demerara.
As they were in the vicinity of Crane Housing Scheme, the male who was seated behind the driver, grabbed him by the neck and demanded that he hand over his valuables.
As the victim resisted, the said male pulled out a knife and dealt him several stabs to his chest. The other male then relieved the victim of his Samsung Galaxy A20 cell phone valued $48,000.
The perpetrators escaped on foot.
The police were informed and responded by taking the victim to the West Demerara Regional Hospital, where he was seen and examined by a doctor on duty and transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he is presently hospitalised in a stable condition.
