Money changer robbed by men with toy gun, knife
A businessman identified as 24-year-old Parshram Sukraj was on Saturday morning robbed of $70,000 while conducting business along the Rose Hall Town public road, Corentyne Berbice.
The young money changer told the Police that shortly after he arrived at the location, the two bandits confronted him; one of them held him at knife-point.
The businessman said he fought back when the second bandit whipped out a gun and demanded he hand over all his money.
The bandits managed to grab only $70,000; a traffic cop who witnessed the robbery, chased after the bandits when one of them dropped the ‘firearm.’
The bandits managed to escape and the weapon was taken to the Police Station for inspection when it was discovered to be a toy gun. The News Room understands that a person of interest has since been arrested for questioning.
