A West Bank Demerara (WBD) family is presently traumatised after four armed men stormed their home and relieved them of an undisclosed sum of valuables during the late hours of Monday evening.
Based on reports gathered, at around 22:30hrs, the gunmen entered the Lot 1482 Onderneeming, Parfaite Harmonie, WBD, home through an unlocked door.
Inews was told that the family members were ordered to lie on the floor, while the perpetrators demanded that they turn over their cellular phones, jewellery and cash.
One of the household members was reportedly hesitant in complying with the bandits’ instructions and as such was “gun butted” to his head.
After retrieving the items- cash, mobile phones and jewellery- the four gunmen fled the scene, not before however, firing one shot in the air the intent of which was to presumably deter their victims from following their trail.
The police were immediately contacted and provided with descriptions of the perpetrators.
Investigations are currently ongoing. (Ramona Luthi)
