Gunmen trail, rob auto sales employees

first_imgPolice are hunting for four men, who reportedly robbed employees attached to Ideal Auto Sales in Little Diamond, East Bank Demerara, on Tuesday morning as they were returning from a commercial bank in Diamond, EBD.Ideal Auto dealership at Little Diamond where the robbery occurredAccording to the Vice President of Operations, Jailall Ragunauth, the incident occurred at around 11:30h in front of the Auto sales’ entrance located on the northern side of the compound.Ragunauth told Guyana Times that the driver and a female employee of the auto sales were returning from the bank after completing a transaction and as they approached the auto sales establishment, a silver-grey Toyota 212 drove in front of their vehicle, thus blocking its path.By then, three masked and armed men exited while a fourth remained in the driver’s seat.“There was no money transaction, they probably were trailed from the bank and the robbers thought that they did a money transaction but we don’t do money transactions here,” Ragunauth explained.The female employee, who had experienced the ordeal, was too traumatised to speak to the media. 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
