Police say they are pursuing every possible lead to apprehend two male suspects who committed a daring robbery on two men at Plaisance, East Coast Demerara (ECD), about 15:30 hrs yesterday, which saw one the victims being shot in both legs.
Enquiries disclosed that businessman, Kenneth Earle of Prince William Street, Plaisance, ECD, accompanied by a friend went to a city bank where he withdrew a large amount of cash to pay his workers.
Based on the Police report received, the businessman proceeded to his home in his motor car and upon arrival, exited his vehicle.
He and his friend were then immediately confronted by the two armed bandits who discharged their firearms at them, hitting Earle in both legs, after which they relieved them of the cash and escaped in a tinted vehicle.
Earle was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was treated and admitted in a stable condition.
Investigators have retrieved several spent shells from the scene.
