Police Headquarters are still trying to ascertain the identities of two bandits who robbed a taxi driver of his car at around 02:45 hrs on Sunday at the Soesdyke Junction, East Bank Demerara.

The two bandits eventually crashed the car, HD 5621 into a utility pole at Land of Canaan, EBD during which one of the bandits died and the other is in a critical condition at the Georgetown Public Hospital.

According to the Police report, the taxi driver, Joel Williams, a 34-year-old of Grove Squatting Area, EBD, claimed that two men, one armed with a knife, robbed him of his Burgundy colour Premio car valued at $2.5 million.
