However, it was relayed that she was relieved of a sum of cash and other valuables that were in her handbag, which the men took away.According to the security guard attached to the facility, he had left his post to retrieve some drinking water and as he was returning, he observed the car alongside the company’s vehicle.“This thing happened fast, I not too long get up to go and get some water is when I coming back I see the three men coming out the car all of them had gun and all of them had on mask, so I run back to the back and call out other staff,” he explained.Ragunauth has since indicated that security will be upgraded at the facility, noting that this is the first his company was robbed since its establishment three years ago.Police have confirmed that an investigation is ongoing and the perpetrators are “known” characters.last_img read more
