A 39-year-old Woman Corporal and a 23-year-old male Private, both of the Guyana Defence Force, were robbed while sitting on the seawall on the Rupert Craig Highway on Wednesday night.
Police Headquarters reported that the two suspects were armed with a knife when they attacked the victims at around 19:45hrs.
They stole a black handbag valued at $4,500; a black Alcatel cell phone valued at $25,000 and $19,000 in cash.
According to the police, one of the suspects pointed a knife at the victims and demanded that they handed over their valuables.

The suspects escaped on foot. No one was arrested.
