Boy, 13, robbed by armed motorcycle bandits


A teenager was Saturday afternoon robbed by two bandits on a motorcycle while on his way home from lessons.

The incident occurred at about 16:30 hours at West Minister Parfaite Harmonie, West Bank Demerara.

According to police reports, the 13-year-old boy was heading home from lessons when he was approached by the two males on an XR motorcycle.

One of the men jumped off the motorcycle and pointed a black metal gun to the victim’s head and relieved him of a LG cellular phone valued $35,000 and $500 cash. The perpetrators then made good their escape.

The police were summoned and the area was searched for the suspects but they were not seen.

Investigation in progress.
