Armed Bandits Rob Three Different Homes
The police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred about 01:30 am today, committed on Shawhadeo Wengagloun, 20 years of Canefield, Canje, who was attacked and robbed by three masked men armed with handguns.
Investigations revealed that Shawhadeo Wengagloun was asleep when he was aroused by the men who had entered the home after smashing a louvre window. The men held him up and took away a cell phone and a wrist watch after which they escaped, discharging several rounds in the air as they did so.
It is suspected that the same three men then proceeded to the home of Fazeela Hussein, 27 years of East Canefield, Canje and robbed her and her husband Wazim Yashwardeo of jewellery valued at $45,000.00 after they had also smashed a glass window and entered the home.
It is also believed that the men had earlier, at about 12:30 am today, smashed a window and entered the home of Suresh Sooknan where they assaulted him, ransacked the house and went away without taking anything.
