Rameshwar Singh, a 34-year-old taxi driver of Skeldon, East Berbice, Corentyne, was reportedly robbed of his Toyota Premio motorcar on Sunday night while returning from the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).
Singh told the News Room that he went to drop off a passenger and 15 minutes after he left the airport, he observed a white car following him.
While in the vicinity of Providence on the East Bank of Demerara, Singh claimed that the suspects crashed into the back of his car. This was about 08:30hrs; Singh said it was raining that night.
The taxi driver related that he stopped his car and came out to inspect the damages. The other driver then drove a short distance in front of Singh and walked back.
“A car was following me and by Providence, the car come behind me and hit my bumper.
“I asked him [the suspect] why he driving like that and he said the road slippery,” Singh recalled.
Singh said he then walked to the back of his car to inspect the bumper when the suspect jumped into his car and drove off.
The taxi driver said he ran and tried to prevent the suspect from taking the car but he fell on the road and injured his shoulder.
According to Singh, the only thing he remembers about the suspect is that he was of East Indian descent. He said there were also persons in the front and back passenger seats of the other car.
After the incident, he made a report at the Providence Police Station.
