Ruimveldt man shot, robbed; suspect arrested
Police have arrested a suspect in connection with the robbery and attempted murder of 33-year-old Damion Allicock which occurred on Sunday night at River View Ruimveldt, Georgetown.
Police Headquarters revealed that Allicock was sleeping in front of his shop at River View at around 22:30hrs when he was shot twice to the abdomen, once to his foot and robbed of his jewellery and cash.
His 23-year-old wife told the Police that she was inside the shop when she heard a male voice shouting, ‘do not move’.
She claimed she looked outside and saw a man dressed in black with a black face mask and a gun in his hand pointing at her husband.
The woman said she ran out of the shop and a few seconds later, she heard three loud explosions. She returned to the scene and found her husband flat on the ground bleeding from his abdomen.
According to the Police, neighbours took the victim to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he is currently hospitalised in a stable condition. He is nursing two gunshot wounds to his abdomen and one to his right side foot.
Detectives who processed the scene recovered one 9mm spent shell.
“A suspect, fitting the description and who was seen shortly after with a suspected gun in his hands in the Albouystown area, was arrested and is in custody as investigations continue,” Police Headquarters noted.
