Aircraft mechanic, business manager robbed on Hadfield Street
Police have arrested an 18-year-old male of Albouystown, Georgetown in connection with the armed robbery of a 30-year-old aircraft mechanic and a 54-year-old business manager which occurred on Monday night at Hadfield Street, Georgetown.
Police Headquarters reported that the two bandits robbed the men of an iPhone 7 valued at $65,000 and a Samsung Galaxy A2 cellphone valued at $42,000.
Police said the two victims know each other and at around 20:50hrs, the mechanic was visiting his girlfriend’s residence at Hadfield Street and had parked his car on the street.
While conversing with his girlfriend inside of the car, he saw the business manager proceeding along Hadfield Street on his motorcycle; the manager stopped in front of the house when he observed the two suspects parked their motorcycle some distance away.
The bandits then approached both victims on foot; it is alleged that the armed suspect pointed a handgun and relieved the manager of the cellphone during which the mechanic exited his car to intervene.
However, the bandit with the gun then pointed the firearm at him and pushed him to the ground while his accomplice relieved him of his cellphone.
The suspects then ran to their motorcycle and escaped.
The mechanic tracked his phone to a house in James Street, Albouystown where a search was carried out on the premises by the police but the phone was not found.
However, an 18-year-old male of the said address was arrested and is in custody assisting with investigations.
