The Guyana Police Force has activated its Crime Intelligence Units and set up strategic road blocks following the daring robbery this afternoon of the Bank of Baroda at its Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara branch.
Police said the robbery occurred at about 12:50hrs today Friday when four men, one of whom was armed with a firearm, entered the Bank of Baroda at Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara and held up the lone female private security guard on duty and took away her .32 service revolver.
During the incident, which the police said lasted for about five minutes, the men then held up the two female tellers and took away an undisclosed amount of cash and escaped in a waiting silver grey/off white premio motor vehicle bearing false registration plate PNN 8984.
