Four robbed, one shot during robbery at Kamboat Restaurant


Police are on the hunt for two bandits who Saturday night shot and injured a man and robbed several others including a Police Corporal of an undisclosed amount of cash and other valuables during a robbery at the Kamboat Chinese Restaurant on Sheriff Street.

The robbery occurred around 22:30 hrs.

The two suspects, one armed with a handgun, used an XR motorcycle in the commissioning of the crime.

The police did not identify the victims by their names. They were only identified as a 21-year-old Ramp Attendant employed at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, an 18-year-old Bill Clerk of the restaurant, a Police Corporal, and a 36-year-old Taxi Driver

The injured victim was shot in his abdomen. He is currently receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital. His condition is listed as stable.

The victims were relieved of cash, four cellular phones, one gold chain, and a number of documents.

Police Headquarters, in a statement on Monday, said the victims were all in the restaurant when the bandits, who posed as customers entered and held them at gunpoint, demanding that they hand over their valuables.

However, the police said one of the victims refused to comply and the armed suspect discharged a round in his direction.

The suspects then took the money from the cash register before escaping.

They then mounted the motorcycle which was parked on William Street, Campbellville and made good their escape.
