Six armed men on Friday morning invaded a Lot 2 Seawell, East Coast Berbice home, entering through the roof. Reports are the armed men climbed onto the roof of the two storey home at about 03:00hrs.
Deoram Wearty, who sleeps in the lower flat of the building, said he heard strange sounds coming from the upper flat and upon checking, realised that persons were on the roof of the building.
Before anyone could have acted, the men, two armed with handguns and four with cutlasses, ordered the occupants to hand over cash and jewellery.
Wearty said the men fired a shot in the house. At this point, he said an undisclosed amount of cash and jewellery were handed over to the bandits.
As the investigation continued, four men from East Canje were taken into custody.
