A young mother and her three-year-old son are now left traumatized after a lone bandit, armed with a knife, assaulted and robbed them of cash and valuables at their home in East Canje, Berbice.
Reports indicate that 21-year-old Drupatie Karran was sleeping in the same bed with her son in her Lot 42 Second Street, Betsy Ground, East Canje home, when she was awoken by the feeling of someone rubbing their hands across her body.
After realizing that the armed man was standing over her, with a condom on his penis, while holding a knife to her son’s neck, Karran screamed. This caused the suspect to quickly flee the scene.The house where the attack occurred
